I'm using MD 2.8.5, all the latest (MonoTouch, Mono, etc.). I have a few code documents open and then I choose to open another solution (File..Open) and closing prior workspace, the windows from the prior solution remain open. I would expect everything would close and the new solution would open and possibly last windows opened from that solution would then open.
I think it only leaves open the documents that were not part of the prior solution.
No, the solution that I opened does not contain the documents that were left opened.
At times though I have had these two solutions opened in the same workspace to do some code comparisons. However, "solution 1" was all that was opened when I opened "solution 2" (close workspace option checked) it still left documents open from solution 1 that are not in solution 2.
Are the files which are left open regular source code files? Or are they windows like the 'Review Changes' version control window?
Code Documents (tabs)
See also bug 2968.
I have experienced this as well. Files that are part of one solution I suddenly find open in another solution even though I only ever opened them as part of working with the first solution, and only from inside MonoDevelop.
1. Open the solution AppPrefs.sln from https://github.com/xamarin/monotouch-samples.
2. Open the file Main.cs from the AppPrefs project.
3. Right-click on the Solution node in the Solution pad, choose 'Close'.
4. See that Main.cs tab remains open.
Main.cs should not remain open.
Renamed title to clarify the original bug.
David's reporting a different (and more important) issue where the right-click->close behaves differently to file->close solution, which should be handled in another bug.
Closing a solution now closes all open project or non-project files. The other bug David reported is also fixed.
