Issue with blog post: How to Use Tabbed Windows

I followed the instructions

choose Always in System Preferences > General > Prefer tabs … when opening documents

and then I tried File->New Window and it did not work.
It was like before where a completely new window would get open and not a tab.

What am I missing?



Which macOS version and which DEVONthink version do you use?

I have the same issue. I can’t get DEVONThink to use tabbed windows. I can only open new windows. No matter if I try to open a new window with hot keys or vie the menu bar.

Even in full screen mode DEVONThink opens a new window instead of a tab.

Intel MacBook Pro 2020
macOS Big Sur 11.1
Devonthink 3.6.1

best regards

Same configuration as @rvantome

macOS Big Sur 11.1
Devonthink 3.6.1



et al:
This tip was older and pertained to older version of macOS. It does not work with newer versions of macOS.

…and I’m on Catalina and assumed it wasn’t working for me since I wasn’t on Big Sur…
