You mean you want to keep the file loaded in Geany, but with no GUI
presence?  If so, thats a significant change to the way tabs operate,
and different to most other applications.  The normal practice is for
tab closing to unload the file, but if it doesn't then users could be
surprised by the growing memory usage as files stayed in memory.

Why do you want to do this?  You haven't explained that yet, so nobody
can suggest possible alternate mechanisms.

Sure, thats the point of tabs, but not sure why you want the other files loaded?

Ok, but do try to answer the questions above, that way we can help you
produce a solution that solves your problem and others problems too.
If you have a problem then others are likely to have a similar issue
too, so lets understand the problem and then look for a common, and
*simple* :) solution.
