C# Question

Can I open two solutions with Visual Studio for Mac at the same time?

That's it. Can this be initiated two times to open two separated solutions at the same time?

Answer

By default an .app runs as a single instance/single document mode, its the Cocca way of life and MonoDevelop/Xamarin Studio/Visual Studio for Mac follows that paradigm.

From the cmd line:

Open a solution in an existing running instance or starts the first instance:

open MySolution.sln

Open a solution in a new instance of the application:

open -n MySolution.sln

-n = Open a new instance of the application(s) even if one is already running.

GUI-based:
