Description Matt 2013-07-01 08:27:44 UTC
Description of Problem: Projects that are in the solution viewer that are closed cannot be opened during / after debugging. 

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Start MD such that some projects are closed. 
2. Run the debugger.
3. Try to open the closed projects, they don't open.

Actual Results: 
Projects that were closed remain closed and cannot be opened.

Expected Results: 
Projects can be opened.

How often does this happen? 
Always. It occurs if the debugger is run, then stopped, or if the debugger is run and then while it is running one tries to open the project.

Additional Information:
I filed a bug recently (and it still exists) in which the object inspection is failing during debugging. This feels similar in that the UI control in both cases is the same (the little triangle). It is almost as if that control is broken in some way and click events are getting ignored under some circumstances.

Is this still an issue? I can't reproduce
Comment 2 Matt 2015-08-27 12:09:38 UTC
It doesn't seem to be an issue anymore.
