I have two screens, so I prefer to open every file in a separate PN2 window so I could see the files side by side. Yes, I could also use “Tile Vertical”, but only if PN2 has only two files. But the result isn’t that nice than if we use multiple windows — try it and you’ll see.
I know that there is the option “Allow multiple instances of Programmer’s Notepad to start”. But there’s a little bit problem here: it’s possible to open the *same* file in two or more instances of PN2 and this isn’t preferable.
So a better paradigm would be “one single instance and multiple windows”. I know this would require a lot of work and changes in the source code. But I would like to know if this is some planned feature for the future?
Yeah, I’d quite like to have the one instance and multiple windows thing as an option, but I can’t offer it any time soon. My time to work on PN is currently extremely limited (although I’m finding a bit of time recently).
In my mind, multiple windows would be implemented as a action triggered by user instead of an option. It’s like in new version of Firefox: when we right-click on a tab, we could choose the item “Move to new window” to open the page/tab in a window. So we could have, eg, one file in one window and two files in another window.
