Open new file in tab

Hi, I've got a problem with open new file in textastic.


For example:

I have already opened some file (abc.txt) in first tab ,but I need to open next file ,so I drag and drop file to textastic. Problem is that textastic doesn't create new tab with new file ,but it replace/add text to current tab and name is still same (From previous file).

Did you drag the file on the dock icon or into the window?

I am dragging file into the window. I think that better is:

- Drag file into the window -> open new tab with file in the current window

- Drag file on the dock icon -> open new window with file...

Dragging into the window will add the file path or file contents (depending on modifier keys) into the editor.

Dragging onto the dock icon is the same as File -> Open which adds a new tab. Dragging multiple files onto the dock icon opens the files in multiple tabs in the current window.

Press Cmd-N before you drag the file onto the dock icon if you want a new window.
I meant Cmd-Shift-N to create a new window.

Thank you I know ,but I think that the ["Dragging into the window will add the file path or file contents (depending on modifier keys) into the editor. "] is not very important function. Much better function for this is  ["Drag file into the window -> open new tab with file in the current window"] and ["Drag file on the dock icon -> open new window with file..."]. Is it more useful on this place + create new window by CMD+SHIFT+N and then again dragging folders is annoying. Also I think that more users are using this "function" then "function" for add content to the file...


It depends on you this is only my opinion...;) Thank you

I'll consider changing the behavior or adding some options.
