welcome to Textadept!

It should work, when you open the find dialogue you can select "in
files" or have this activated when you use command-shift-f or the menu.
Next a dialogue should show up to select the directory, results being
displayed in a message buffer which you can select to jump to the
respective files.

You can set
buffer.end_at_last_line = false
in your .textadept/properties.lua

More settings which you can overwrite in this file as well can be found
in Textadept's main properties.lua file, have a look at

Kind of.
There is Mitchell's filebrowser (
and Textredux ( which has recursive
file open dialogs.
Both are not permanently open or have symbols though it's certainly
possible to build something like this for Textadept.

This was discussed a couple of times and it's not simple. Personally I
don't use tabs (most of the time) and use the buffer list in Textredux
which is sorted by directories, thus showing related files next to each
