How to load new documents in a single instance of SciTE
March 17, 2005 2:20 PM   Subscribe

I've decided to move on from my favourite UltraEdit to the up and coming SciTE. However, I have one annoying "feature" that's stopping me from falling in love with SciTE. I have yet to figure out how to stop it from creating separate instances when loading multiple documents.

On Windows platforms, I've noticed that if I use the "Right Click" plugin or the classic Send To... trick that SciTE creates a separate instance each time I use it (opening one document at a time). I want each document loaded to show up in a single instance as a new tab, but so far have only been able to do that when loading a document from directly inside SciTE. Any suggestions?

Change
check.if.already.open=0

in the SciTEGlobal.properties file to
check.if.already.open=1

That's how I have mine set up, too. =)

Thanks, you hit it right on the nail!

I really like the simplicity and straightforwardness of SciTE, but the global properties is a bit intimidating the first time you see it.

Cheers!
