What is wrong with tabs?


Why atom starts to use rectangle instead of starting tabs?

And why when I try open new file from tree view it opens in active tab instead of opening in new tab.
Sorry for my English=)


Please rephrase this question.

When you click on an item once, it will open in a “pending tab”. You can identify pending tabs because the file name is in italics. A pending tab is made permanent if you change the file or click a second time.


It’s (probably) because of small screen size. What you want is to enable spacious layout mode and even tab sizing. Go to File -> Settings -> Themes -> click the gear button next to the UI Theme dropdown. Then set the Layout Mode to Spacious and the Tab Sizing to Even.


Thank you very much!=)


I’ve created a FAQ for this now too:
