Open in new window?

Folk,

Is there a method of opening a completely new window for a project? I'm not looking for a split view, but rather a whole new "instance" of PyCharm. I'm looking to have more than one editor window visible across monitors.

I didn't see obvious links to that functionality in help/menus.

Hello jason,

Right now PyCharm doesn't support floating editor windows - it's planned

for a future update (after 1.0 I'm afraid). What you can do in the current

version is use "Open Directory" on another directory which is somewhere under

your project, and answer "Yes" when prompted to open it in a new window.

Then you'll have two different instances which you can position on different

monitors.
