Don't be ashamed, it took me ages too :) To get the tabs you have to 
first create a project (cmd-ctrl-n), then add files to its tray 
(cmd-shift-a), and then when you click on those files you get tabs. 
Alternatively you can drop multiple files on the app and it'll create a 
scratch project.

So it's quite a few more hoops to jump through than your usual editor 
with tabs, but imho it's better than all the completely tab-free ones 
and I hear that it'll be getting better.
