Disappearing editor tabs ((((

Guys,
I'm sure you think this is a feature -- when poor developer (me) has opened to many tabs -- RM will silently close some of them.
This is not a feature this unbelievably ugly, dsigusting bug.
Do you really think that browsing project structure to find a file and then scroll through all of it to find needed line of code is fun?
No it isn't.
I am quite comfortable with 50 opened editor tabs even if they will take 10 "tab rows", but please do not automatically close anything I have had opened by hand.

--Thanks)

#besides "hidden breakpoints" it is second of most annoying things about RM

Hello yu,

You can turn automatic tab closing off in Settings | Editor | Editor Tabs.

Note that RubyMine provides many navigation features which are far more efficient
than scrolling through a file, such as Goto Symbol, Goto Definition, Find
Usages, File Structure Popup, and so on and so forth.

THANKS!!!!

Look guys, maybe it is worth to put some effort developing "settings/configuration tutorial" for RM? Kind of "cheat sheet" or alike.
Because it is not always easy to find  or anyhow get to know that needed feature exists/is configurable  in help or directly in "settings" window?



For example --
once I have closed all those panes at the bottom inside "debug" -- "Frame", "Variables" "watches" etc -- I had hard time searching RM settings/controls to findout how do I turn them back.
If someone would ask me how I managed them back -- I have no answer. "Somehow"

Im sure that somewhere in the help system it is described, but it is too long too inconvenient to find it.
Would be much more efficient if we would have all "RM configuration/workspace-tuning info gathered onto one page, well sorted" (==you've got the point)) )

regards, happy NY and thanks for great IDE)
