What it the setting that permits to open more than one tab for a drawing that is part of the layout book (I want to open three tabs relating to the three floor plans).

There is an option in the Work Environment that will force all new layout pages to open in separate tabs.

Just be careful to make sure you close some down when you’ve finished with them. We’ve found it slows Archicad down, especially launching files, with lots of tabs open.
