How can I make xfce4-terminal always show tab bar?

As in the title, is there such a feature for xfce4? If not, how can I post a feature request?

The reason I find it useful is that when I snap a terminal window to fill the screen, and then open a new tab, the window grows to a size large than the screen, rendering the bottom of the window invisible, and a re-snap necessary, which is quiet annoying.

If there is a way to edit the source code a little bit and compile it myself to achieve this effect, please give me some guidance.

Thank you!

Set MiscAlwaysShowTabs=TRUE in ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc.

Thanks. But are you sure it really works? Doesn't work here.
xfce4-terminal version 0.4.8, system LinuxMint 14.

It works here:
- xfce4-terminal 0.6.1
- Xubuntu Raring 13.04

Must be a configuration that was added to a later version of xfce4-terminal.

Hi, ToZ. I have upgraded to xfce4-terminal 0.6.1, and still no luck.
Could you please check the path and post the content of your terminalrc here?

Thanks a million!

Okay, figured it out, I need to put a [Configuration] line in the beginning. Thanks!

I don't understand, why not just put those hidden configurations in the GUI?
