[SOLVED].txt files open in all workspaces

I normally work with 4 workspaces, but when I open a .txt file in one workspace it also appears in all workspaces.
Is there a setting I have missed ?
This is mint 18.3 with Cinnamon.

Re: No thumbnails at all in Nemo 2.08

karl,
I have found the error I made. I followed the post later in the link you gave (post 153) which in fact reversed the symlink properties.
Having made the symlink as explained in your post above it now seems to work OK.

Many thanks for your patience.

Re: No thumbnails at all in Nemo 2.08

Hi Karl, Well I tried that with symlinks etc and can now get thumbnails BUT I for all the photos I have I need to view them in the default viewer before the thumbs are created. This will take ages. Is there no way to run a batch job to thumbnail all items in a folder and subfolders ? This is plain m...

No thumbnails at all in Nemo 2.08

Mint 13 LTS plus Nemo 2.08 from backports. This is becoming important now as I have a large number of photos and without the thumbnails it is getting frustrating to use Nemo. I have obviously set thumbnails to be displayed in preferences and increased the file size to max - 4 Gb but no thumbnails ar...

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading Mint 13 to Cinnamon 2.0 - Nautilus re

Yesterday I upgraded Cinnamon to 2.0.14 but still had Nautilus controlling the file handling. A waste of space and resources as Nautilus is now unneeded. I removed Nautilus-data (Complete removal) through Synaptic and and automatically the needed packages for Cinnamon 2.0 downloaded, installed and ...

Re: Cinnamon/Nemo is lying to me.

Just a quick thought for the mint devs. Maybe there should be a tab in the preferences in mint update to "Clean" downloaded updates to save space. This would prevent build up of unneccesary packages in the /var directory as I think my 4,6 GB was built up over a year. Although experienced users would...

Re: Cinnamon/Nemo is lying to me.

Thanks Karlchen that really helped. I Ran df -k and it showed that Nemo was in fact correct. Upon further analysis of the / directories I found that /var was 4.6Gb and that running apt-get clean freed up a lot of space. Many thanks once again for pointing me in the right direction to look. Feel a li...
