I can’t seem to get Open in Tabs to work. It always opens a new window instead. “Enable tabbed browsing” is checked in preferences. I’ve turned it off and on, restarted, etc. Tabs are working in other programs, so I think something isn’t sticking with my DEVONthink preferences. Any advice?
Thanks, Korm. Files open in tabs as you say but I want windows in tabs. I think I remember doing that in the past, but perhaps I’m imaging it. That’s what I thought was meant by “tabbed browsing.” Can you clarify?
Window tabs aren’t a feature of DEVONthink. They’re a feature of the operating system.
Go into System Preferences > Dock and set Prefer tabs when opening documents to Always.
This will open double-clicked groups and File > New Window in a window tab (which is not a document tab).
Well, look at that! Exactly what I wanted and in the process, I gained new understanding of DEVONthink file tab nuances. Thank you to the forum gods. You know who you are.
You’re welcome. Cheers!
I’ve done as instructed, but to no avail. It is still opening in a new window in DTP, even though it works just fine in the Finder.
It is still opening a new window for what?
Yes. But I have restarted the Mac and now it works again. I just thought it was odd, that it would keep opening new windows instead of tabs even though I had not changed any settings and it would still work correctly in the Finder.
