How to Open Multiple Documents Simultaneously on Mac OS X


In Windows, it is easy to launch multiple instances of TLex, tlTerm, tlDatabase, or tlCorpus. In Mac OS X, there is no obvious easy way to do this.

Possible Solution(s)

Run the application. Then under the Tools menu, select the "Launch new instance of ..." command. You can open as many instances as you need.

Note that if you make changes to Preferences while multiple instances are open, they may not be correctly remembered or synchronized across instances.

Note that we are working on proper Multiple-Document-Interface support for Mac and Windows; this solution is a stop-gap workaround until this is available.

Applicable platform(s): Apple Mac OS X
