How can I force a file to open in a new window?

Answered

I am using the command line launcher to open files. The problem I am having is that my file is opening in one of the open projects. I would like to force it to open as a new project window. It seems like there would be a command line switch for this, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Hello,

actually there was a request for changing the behaviour you're asking for to another one, which is current:

I'm definitely fine with it opening in the same window by default, but I think the other option should be available as a CLI switch. I will open a  request. Thank you for your response.
