If you are working with multiple tabs in gedit you can group them, making it easier to keep your opened files organized. Adding a new tab group will divide the gedit window in two panes, open a new "Untitled Document" in the new pane, and make it active. You can open files into that tab group and move tabs from one tab group to another.
To open a new tab group you can:
Go to Documents ▸ New Tab Group in the main menu.
Use the Ctrl+Alt+N shortcut.
This action will divide the gedit window in two panes, and the pane with the new tab group will be placed on the right of the active tab. You can move the handle right or left assigning more or less space of gedit window between panes according to your needs.
You can open as much tab groups in gedit window as your screen allows, but you will have to move the handle in order to see them correctly.
To close a tab group pane just close all the tabs that are opened inside it.
To move forward (on the next) tab group:
Go to Documents ▸ Next Tab Group in the main menu.
Use the Shift+Ctrl+Alt+Page down shortcut.
To move backward (on the previous) tab group:
Go to Documents ▸ Previous Tab Group in the main menu.
Use the Shift+Ctrl+Alt+Page up shortcut.
If you want to move a tab from one tab group to another:
Click and hold the mouse button on the tab.
Drag the tab to another tab group pane.
Place it beside other tabs in the tab group.
Release the mouse button.
See thetable to make it easier to manage your tab groups.
