tabbed windows in Mac - as setProp

Geoff Canyon via use-livecode
Well it seems the feature is “tabbed” windows. It is a feature of High Sierra. However for non-Apple apps it has to be implemented by the third party, and in this case I think the LC implementation is faulty.  I can add windows to the tabs, but not remove the last tab.There is supposed to be a menu item in the Windows menu to turn the feature on and off, but it’s not there. I can’t turn it off and I have no idea how it got turned on, presumably a combination of option keys while the cat was walking across the keyboard. Yesterday upon the stair I met a man who wasn’t there … I wish, I wish he’d go away.

The menu item “View > Show Tab Bar” does show up occasionally, there does seem to be a trick to getting it to show up if it’s not there right now.

I find that switching apps will sometimes return the menu item occasionally, but I seem to be able to force it to show up by switching to an app that does have tabs, such as Mail, then click on the LC window that is showing a Tab Bar (to switch back to LC), now click and hold on the “Development” Menu then slide across to the “View” menu, now you have one opportunity to turn off the offending Tab bar before it magically disappears again.

Hope I explained well enough and it works for you, good luck.
