I want to be able to look at the script of a different project without having to close the one I'm working on. I haven't found a way to have two projects open at once, any ideas?

If you open godot a second time you can have both projects up at once. And I do mean open godot a second time, go through the select menu and all.

for Mac users with this issue a quick workaround is to open up a terminal window and paste the following command in

open -n -a Godot

For pc users, just right click your application in the taskbar and click the godot application and it will pull up another instance of godot from the project select page.

initially I was using a second instance of desktop which is available if you are on the latest windows, but I found this post particularly helpful as you can easily launch a second instance of godot by simply just launching it again.

I thought it wasn't possible, and I just opened a new project while the other one was open and it worked. I had both of them pulled up with no problem.

For mac user, right click on the app -> click new window to open the second project. But the laptop runs slower with 2 projects open I suppose.

don't do that if you are opening tile-heavy projects because that causes godot to crash more frequently
