How to make Kate remember last opened files

October 22nd, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Kate allows document editing to be grouped under separate sessions.  Although there is no direct configuration setting to make Kate auto-open last opened files during startup, the Sessions features come handy.  The workaround is; given that Kate remembers last opened file paths in the File -> Open Recent menu item, you may select files one by one to continue editing.  But, this is so boring.

The procedure is the following:

  1. Open all the files that you want to be remembered by Kate for reopening during next restart of Kate.
  2. Click on Sessions->Save Session As->[give a session name here to save the session]
  3. Close your Kate application.
  4. Open it again, you would see no files reopened automatically, Don’t Panic!
  5. Click on Sessions->Quick Open Session->[session name].
  6. Aha… all the files that you had put into the session will reappear.
