Question Is it not possible to hide the tabbar in SecureCRT Linux?

So, I thought there used to be an option in SecureCRT's Options->Global->Terminal->Appearance configuration panel, a checkbox to "Show session tabs" (I think this also used to be in the "View" menu), but it doesn't appear to exist in SecureCRT 7.3.0 657 for Ubuntu 13-64 (or SecureCRT 7.2.6 606 for OSX, for that matter).

Also, as expected, I am unable to hide the tabbar by using the keymap editor to map the menu function MENU_TOGGLE_SESSION_TABS to a key combo either.

Is the ability to hide the tabbar no longer present in SecureCRT for Linux and OSX? Was it ever present? I honestly never tried to use this feature until recently. It appears that I am able to turn off everything but the tabbar.

Hello wwinfrey,

You have an excellent memory!

It did exist, but the ability to toggle the tab bar caused a problem with the terminal display area that was going to be very difficult to fix (on SecureCRT/Mac and SecureCRT/Linux).

We will look into the issue again and see if it might be possible to add this functionality now.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to (re)add ability to toggle tab bar to SecureCRT/Linux and SecureCRT/Mac. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #11762" in the subject line.
