In the terminal I always have the same 3 tabs open, plus other random ones.

It would be nice if I could have the terminal open with these three tabs open and their titles set.

I tried

gnome-terminal --save-config=/home/user1/usertabs

but this doesn't save the titles I set for the tabs.

Any ideas on how I might accomplish this?

It appears the problem is related to the profile being used. If the profile has its

"Title and Command"->"When terminal commands set their own titles:" = Keep initial title

then the titles find their way into the configuration file. You can either modify the Default profile or create a new profile.

Please pay attention to the symbols used in your title!, If you use special symbols like / you titles will be not saved.
