I’m not sure if this has been requested or if its already a feature. I asked in the IRC room and was told to create a feature request.
Basically, I would like to be able to browse a directory in the tree view, skipping around to different files for viewing temporarily without it leaving the tabs open for each file viewed. In other words, for files that I select and do not explicitly ‘open’ I would like for it to show up in the buffer window but disappear from the open file tabs when I move on to the next file. For the files that I explicitly open or modify, i would like for that tab to remain after moving on to the next file.
If more elaboration is needed, I would be glad to provide it.
