    Default Kate editor behaviour

    Hello,
    By far, Kate is my favorite editor to use when I am coding c and c++ codes.
    One feature that I greatly dislike is that by default if I open another c++ files, instead of opening a new window, the editor keeps a single window with multiple documents.

    I was wondering if it's possible/how to disable this feature so there is one window per document.

    Example

    I open this.cpp and I have one kate editor open.
    In another "virtual desktop" I open another.cpp, then a new window of kate editor opens.


    Thanks for your time

    Start Kate with the -n or --new parameter.
    To do that for opening files, use the menueditor to change Kate's menu entry accordingly. This should then be respected whenever you open a file with Kate.

    kmenuedit, the editor for modifying the K-Menu entries.
    Right-click on the K-Menu icon (application launcher, "start menu") and choose "Edit menu entries...".
