Do you guys use spaces? Or do you have TotalFinder window hidden or minimized?
The logic which decides if tab or new window should be opened is quite complex. If you have default settings and opening tab in non-visor window I look for last active tab window on current space (and this method has some problems, because hidden/miniaturized windows are not counted to be on any space).
We have two tweaks which alter the behaviour:
The first one forces all new tabs created to appear in Visor window (this is a hack for people who use Visor exclusively):
All I want is for total finder to always open a new finder tab in the 1 main finder window that I use. Not in a new finder window or the visor.
I tried changing the boolean ‘yes’ to a ‘no’ and am not getting the results I want.
again, here is my desired workflow, this is the way total finder worked in snow leopard for me:
I want one Finder window with all my tabs and for Finder to have it’s own space in Mountain Lion. I like not having many finder windows open.
I do use spaces and I have one space with only finder in it. So, I will never have a situation where a new tab is created via another application from that space
If I do ‘show in finder’ or ‘reveal in finder’ from any application in a diff space, i get a tab opens in a new window.
Also, from spotlight, If i’m searching from a diff space, i get a tab opens in a new window.
How do I get total finder to behave the way i have described above?
