Mousepad - How to open file in new tab?

Hi,

Whenever I open a text file in the file manager (Thunar), a new instance of Mousepad opens, showing the file. When I open multiple files, it will open them all in a single window with a tab for each text file. But then, when I open a single file again... it does that in a new window/instance.

I'd like for Mousepad to just open this text file as a new tab in the existing instance. Is there any way to force this (like a command line flag)?

Currently, it can't be done. I was thinking the same would be a nice feature and your post prompted me to create a feature request. Lets see if it gets some traction.

For anyone on Xubuntu 20.04, this feature was implemented in version 0.4.90 of Mousepad (released in 2020-11-20). We have got to wait until 22.04 comes out, upgrade to Impish or compile from source.
