Opening a second instance of Visual Studio on the mac.
Would you like to work in two Visual Studios at the same time on your mac? Visual Studio for mac only opens one instance by default. Read on to learn how to open two instances of VS for mac.
When I work with Unity and visual studio, I usually have these apps running:
- Unity with the unity project
- Visual Studio 1 with the project scripts
- Visual Studio 2 with my class library that is used by the scripts
Opening a solution on Windows will start a new instance of Visual Studio. On the mac the current solution will be closed and replaced by the opened solution.
To prevent this from happening, you need to open a second instance manually like this:
- Open a Terminal
- Run this:
open -n -a "Visual Studio"
