Make Your Developer's Life Easier By Reducing Number Of Opened Tabs in PycharmFeb 23, 2017 · by Tim Kamanin
When coding, I often find myself overwhelmed by a number of opened tabs in my editor. I just seem to have opened every single .py file of a Django project. And it's kinda hard to find a way in this evergrowing of tabs.
Given that, I was really happy to discover a neat feature of PyCharm IDE called " closing tabs policy ". This feature keeps a number of opened tabs to a defined by you limit , let's say 3 tabs and auto-closes less used when you go over the limit. Which is really helpful, I myself found that limit of 5 is very comfortable for me.
You can apply this feature in 3 simple steps:
- Open Pycharm preferences
- Type " tab closing policy " and you'll be directed straight to the Tab Limit input
- Set your limit, pick your closing policy and click Apply.
Now you're all set and believe me, this will definitely make your dev workflow smoother.
