Add possibility to hide/disable "close tab" button

Metin Amiroff 7 years ago • updated by Daniel Quality 3 months ago 4
Imagine a scenario where you've got lots of files open in one window and the window is narrow. Tab widths get so small that when switching between them using mouse rapidly it's really easy to accidentally hit close button. Say you don't want to use keyboard shortcuts and left pane. An option to disable close tab button would be nice, as middle mouse button could be used for that purpose.

That or use CTRL-W, which is why I do to close tabs. I almost never use the close button, so reclaiming that space would be worthwhile.
I would like to see something similar to what FireFox does: Only size the tabs down so far, and then have them "fall off" with arrows showing up on either side. Then have a menu show up to view a list of all tabs on the bar.

The close button is still available in the left panel (open files).

I set "show_tab_close_buttons": false. I've got the newest version of Sublime Text 3.

This option probably works only for tabs, but should also work for side bar.
