I know you can achieve this by typing "gedit .whateverfile" at the prompt, but that is kind of annoying once you have gedit already open. Any thoughts? Thanks.
The way to accomplish this is to select run application in the Gnome Menu and type gedit .filename and if gedit is already open it will create a new tab for the file. You can also use File -> Open URI and use file:///path/to/.filename
The tab completion does not seem to work.
