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: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/open-projects.html#open 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.
