7 tab limit in service studio

Hi, I've noticed that opening an 8th tab in service studio automatically opens a new instance of service studio for the latest tab. It seems like 7 is the limit per instance of service studio, and I was wondering if there is any way to increase the number of open tabs inside the same instance?

Having 2 service studio programs open easily confuses me as I have trouble remembering where the module I'm looking for is opened... :-)

You can easily post an idea "asking" for that option on "our" Service Studio :)

Kind Regards,


I think this wasn't something that was decided "just because". 

If you reach 7 tabs after a while the memory allocated will be too much and for that reason a new instance is created. 

Hi Gwen Jamroziak,

I share the same answer of jose,

if you open 7 tabs it's like opening 7 projects consumes too much memory like other programs with C# java among others.

Let's remember that when opening a project in outsystems the component blocks are loaded, action screens themas variable... and everything is loaded by the ram memory and the processor.

If you really need to have more than 7 tabs, you could open another instance of the study service and you would have 7 more tabs.


Thanks for the responses. I do understand that there might be good reasons behind this decision.
Nevertheless, I followed Márcio's response and created an idea for it.
