IDEA 11 - opening multiple projects not possible?

I am evaulating the Ultimate Edition of 11 and it seems I cannot open more than one project at a time.

In my fully licensed 10.5, I can have several projects open in separate frames.

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Morten,

What happens when you try to open the second project?

Do you have the following checkbox set - 'IDE Settings | General | Confirm window to open project in'?

The new project opened in the same frame.

However, your suggested fix - checking the unchecked option - has solved the problem! :-)

Cool, thanks for the update.

Hi, I also ran into this problem. I'd consider it a bug, as I did not have to set that option in version 10 (or I had set it and long forgot about it, in which case it should have been migrated with the rest of my settings.)

My immediate reaction on not being able to open a second window was to assume that they had perhaps disabled this feature in the evaluation version. A new user would likely think it wasn't even supported.

Thanks

I had the same feeling - so it does cause some confusion, even though the fix is simple when pointed out.
