Gedit opens new files in new windows

Hello, last month gedit started to open new files in new windows. If I mark multiple text files in Nautilus (Files) and hit enter, it opens multiple windows. I am used to have openned one window and multiple tabs instead and this was the default behavior for years.

I tried to uninstall gedit, remove all gedit folders and files in $HOME and install gedit back, but that didn't work. I also tried to reset config through `dconf reset -f /org/gnome/gedit/`, but that didn't help either. What should I do to fix my issue? Is this a bug or not?

Re: Gedit opens new files in new windows

I can't reproduce your issue.
What happens if you try opening multiple files with gedit from command line? e.g.

gedit file1.txt file2.txt

They are openned in one window as two tabs. So this must be some issue in Nautilus?

Re: Gedit opens new files in new windows

Could be something with nautilus, or something else.
Have you modified the org.gnome.gedit.desktop for some reason?
Also test what happens with:

gio open file1.txt file2.txt

I haven't modified that probably. gio open opens in two windows too.
