I heavily use gedit for opening and editing documents. Since yesterday (with no update or upgrade), gedit has started to open each document as a new window instead of its default behavior to open as a new tab.

How can I revert the behavior to open each document as a new tab.

  • if I don't catch it wrong, your mean use gedit --new-document 1.txt 2.txt that's automatically opened as two tabs in one window. – abu-ahmed al-khatiri Oct 3 '18 at 14:35
  • @abu-ahmedal-khatiri When I open on the desktop, not command line. When I open the second document, it opens as a new window as that a new tap of the already opened window. – Googlebot Oct 3 '18 at 17:21

  • Post the output of cat /usr/share/applications/gedit.desktop | grep Exec -B3 – abu_bua Oct 9 '18 at 12:01
