In new UI, there is no "Get from Version Control" when you have a project open

If working in one project and you want to open a 2nd project from VCS in a new window, the dropdowns don't have anything.

I have the New UI enabled on pycharm pro, version below.

This page:  says there is in VCS dropdown “Get from Version control.” 

There is an easy workaround (find the action; assign a shortcut).  But I think “get from vcs” should be in the “File|Open…” dropdown.  And also in the “Git” or “VCS” dropdown, both of those are obvious expectations?




PyCharm 2023.2 (Professional Edition)
Build #PY-232.8660.197, built on July 26, 2023

Runtime version: 17.0.7+7-b1000.6 amd64

I also have jetbrains emacs keymap in place but don't think that changes what is in menus.

When the project is not managed by the VCS, there is this option under the VCS menu:

When the project is managed by the VCS, there is an option called “Clone” under the Git menu:

Is it different for you? Of course, we could raise a usability issue about unifying this under a single action for both cases.
