Pin tabs

#1

i use the tabs a lot, it would be nice to have the ability to pin tabs, so they won’t disappear as i continue to open files.

I’d also like the ability to pin tabs so you can’t close them. Also maybe shrink them as well!

I usually have my first tab of a project a TODO tab using the Plaintasks package. Having it as large as the other tabs makes it get in the way sometimes. Same with another tab I have being a sort of scratch pad where I can move code out to a temporary holding place.

+100! I always have a few tabs used to take some notes, it would be great to have them pinned! I hope someone will work on that soon.

But there is a plugin!

Take a look at this awesome one: (ST3) TabsExtra :geek:

yeah, that would be a very cool feature! just like chrome does, pin tab is very useful, and I think it has to be shrinked like in chrome when being pinned.

just hope the developer of sublime could think about it seriously, or somebody can create a plugin for this functionality.

LockTab is available in the package control: a shortcut to put the tab into a “locked” state, tab can’t be closed (dialog optional) until unlocked, no visual tab shrinking/reordering.

Locking is nice… but to shrink them too, would be nicer.

Hi!

Don’t want to ruin everything, but: why would you want to pin some tab

Do you know the goto anything? try: ctrl+p.

Something important to know: there is an editor that do not use tabs: (zeed)[http://zedapp.org]

i recommend reading this page: why did they create zed

+1 for it to be a native feature that would display the tab small like in a browser.

I’ve tried https://packagecontrol.io/packages/TabsExtra but it closes the tab on the second run of close other tabs.

I found that https://packagecontrol.io/packages/LockTab doesn’t have this issue and is more customisable.
