I am wondering if there is a way to force
gedit (the default text editor in Ubuntu) to open a separate window when opening a second text file, with another already open.
The default behaviour is to use the already open process, and just open a new tab in its window.
I should add that if I drag the tab for one of the open files out of the window, this opens a separate window. However, I'd like to know if this can be done in a single step.
