View Full Version : More than 10 files in MXS editor

04 April 2009, 03:38 PM
I cannot find the answer to this or the setting in the settings file, though I know it has been said and the setting must be there. How can I set the MXS scite editor to open more than 10 tabs?

Set the buffers=nn option in (Tools -> Open Global options file).
You will need to reopen the editor (or perhaps max, don't remember which one it was)

thanks ofer, i was hoping there was an answer to this one. Maybe we could start an editor customisation thread or something and share any other tips that people might not know?

has anyone ever figured out how to open two editors at once?

I have been meaning to make tutorials about customizing and using the mxs editor in this sticky thread. I could change the title a bit a and you all good add to it, you can make force the tab to double it's height when tabs are more then > n. There's actually a lot you can tweak. And lots of it is described in the mxs helpfile too.

So I propose to use the afore mentioned sticky and I will put up an index to each tip on the first page!?

Good idea!? Proposal for an adjusted thread name?
