#44 Cannot open more than one copy of Scite

SciTE (627)

When the check.if.already.open option is set to 0, it
is not possible to open more instances of Scite. The
first instance appears correctly, but subsequent
attempts to open Scite fail to appear on the desktop.
They appear in the task bar, and flash on the destop
for a millisecond or two, but do not open properly.

    I can't reproduce this. Did you mean
    check.if.already.open=1 as the purpose of that is to only
    allow one copy to be opened. Have you modified any other
    settings from the defaults? Which platform and window

    Nope, I mean when it is set to 0, i.e., should be possible
    to open more than one instance. I just tried it with none
    of the option file modified, and it behaves properly.
    After a bit of testing, it appears that the offending
    option is position.tile=1. If this is set while
    position.left and .right are commented out, the behaviour
    described occurs. I guess I can see why. The
    position.tile option doesn't seem to do anything either
    way, mind you.

    The problem with position.tile with default positions is
    fixed and this fix wil be available in 1.46. It works if
    you have an explicit left position set.
