    Never gave it any thought, but it’s a time saver!
    TextEdit is one of the best Apple applications around, I use it all the time.
    Thanks, that’s why I come here :-)

    Didn’t see View/”Show Tab Bar” but Merge All got the thing rolling. Nice to know about.

    It is such a handy program, I wish Apple would improve it. It lacks a Clear all Tabs, the behavior within a Table is poor, no user friendly way to set page margins …

    Love these little hidden gems! I too use TE as my daily “go-to” simple word processor of choice. RTF and TXT files are so under appreciated.

    cmd-option N creates a new empty tab.

    Ad far as I know there is no way to open an existing document in a tab but if the tab bar is visible, you can open an existing document then drag the tab bar to your other tabs.

      Also, if you are in full screen mode, documents will be opened in a new tab by default. One could do ctrl-cmd-F, cmd-O then ctrl-cmd-F to get out of full screen again.
