How to set the tab width so that it doesn't span the entire window

Asked by Nikhil Kale on 2008-10-21


First of all, let me thank you for creating just a wonderful tool. I just started using it, and can't think of using any other terminal besides this.

Is there are way to configure the width of the tabs ? Currently, the tabs span the entire width of the tab bar (or the enclosing terminator window). Is would be nice to have an option to configure the tabs width based upon user preferences, like -

1. tab width to fit the tab bar (the window width)
2. tab width to fit the title
3. fixed tab width

I personally like option #3 (just like Firefox or multi-gnome-terminal tabs)

Currently there is no way to configure the width of the tabs, but it's an interesting idea.
