There are several useful command line options:
$ man bluefish

-c, --curwindow
Open a file in an existing window. This can be used to overwrite the chosen default.
-n, --newwindow
Open a file in a new window. This can be used to overwrite the chosen default.
-?, --help, --help-*, --help-all
Print all or just a group of help options. Some of these options may be documented in gtk-options(7) and gnome-options(7).
--help-gtk

--class=CLASS Program class as used by the window manager
--name=NAME Program name as used by the window manager

Many programs like browsers, email clients and file managers can be configured to open files in Bluefish. For example, bluefish '%s' will open a file in the current window, bluefish -n '%s' will open a file in a new window.
