I was able to do this just fine in the previous version of elementary OS. But I've been unable to find a method to do it in Freya.

I want CTRL+ALT+Tto duplicate a tab in Freya with the same directory. So if the current tab is in ~/Workspace/Websites I can just press the key sequence and it'll open a second tab in ~/Workspace/Websites as well instead of having to right click on the tab and clicking duplicate.

just set org.pantheon.terminal.settings.follow-last-tab in dconf to true.
Or you can execute in terminal:
gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings follow-last-tab true

  • Perfect solution. Cheers! The devs should add an option for this in the GUI though
