I just jumped versions from ~R2005 to R2011a. Where have the file tabs for the editor gone?
They are there when the editor is docked in the main MATLAB window but when it's undocked (which I keep it all the time so that I can use it full screen of course) the different file tabs are nowhere to be found.
What I'm talking about is called the "Document Bar" - in the Desktop menu of the main window right at the bottom. It provides a tabbed view of all the different .m files you're editing. it appears when the editor is docked in the main windows but not when the editor is undocked and operating fullscreen, which is how it is used the majority of the time. In older versions of MATLAB it was always part of the editor undocked. It can't be this way... this is a crazy loss of functionality... I must be missing something?
Hey guys, thanks for the input. Turns out Undock Editor and Undock .m file in editor are two different things, and the little undock arrow that I always press does only the latter. It's also very hard to find the former by right-clicking - you have to hit just the right place or know to look through the Desktop menu. Anyways, when I go Undock Editor then it undocks the entire thing and the document bar goes with it - cool. Thanks for your help!
Thank you, I was stuck with the same problem in R2011b. It would really help if there was a setting to 'force' the use of tabs for multiple files (like the setting in IE or Firefox to control how new windows are handled).
