Has the behavior of opening files from the search results changed?

I just recently updated to..

Version: 3.0.0

Build: 290423

When I conduct a search on my workspace, I get the results based on the matching string. {good}

When I click on the line item for a particular file from the search (results) panel, the file (File A) opens and the queried string is highlighted. {good}

Among the search results, are references to other files the string was also found. {good}

If I click on the line item for another file (File B), File A closes and File B takes its place in the main file edit panel. {bad}

Previously, "clicked" matches from the search results would open the file and add it in the edit panel as a new panel. With enough screen real-estate I could compare files. However, any file opened now from the search results replaces any previous searched file.

I hope this is not a bug, but rather just some preference that needs to modified.

I guess I can answer this myself.

In preferences under general > search. I deselected 'Reuse editors to show matches'.

And now each file opens without "reusing the editor space".
