Open Document in New Tab

Perhaps it's because I'm still new to MMD Composer, but I haven't found a way to open a file directly into a new tab. So far I can only open a new file, which pulls up a new window, and then gather these into a single window. So my suggestion:

could there be a setting in Preferences that allows documents to open in a new tab by default?

It might also be worth having this as a drop-down-menu item as well: File > Open in a New Tab. That would help users who just want to do it as a one-off. But since I almost always use tabs in a single window, rather than multiple windows, my personal preference would be to have a setting in Preferences.

Peace out,

    Thanks for writing with the suggestion — I’ll take a look at this and see if there would be any issue with adding a preference and/or separate menu commands vs some other approach.
