Maximum number of files

I am Trying to create a big project in c++ and for that I'm using multiple source(.cpp) and header(.h) files

The problem is that after creating like ~13~14~ files, the files begin to appear below the multifile bar and I can't seem to access them. The only thing I can see and click on of the files after the ~13th~14th~  are the three dotes that are used to rename or delete your file. I would like to know if there is a way to access those files or if it's a bug if it will be repaired?

I think that there's less of a chance that you've hit the upper file limit, and that it's more likely you have too many files open at once. If possible, I would suggest closing any header files that you aren't modifying on a day-to-day basis.

You may have already tried this, but you might be able to put your cursor over the area where the files are and use the mouse scroll wheel (two-finger swipe if you're on a laptop) to try to see if you can pan through the "tabs" of open files. I don't know if this scroll/swipe gesture works or not because I haven't been in this particular situation before on the OnlineGDB code editor, but I know that it works on most other code mainstream editors.
