By default MD will open .sln files but does not open .csproj which is annoying.
It's a bit worse when VMware fusion is installed since it will start a VM to get VS.NET to open that .csproj file.

Opening .csproj worked in MonoDevelop 2.8.5 (opened the solution)
Currently, this problem is reoccurring in 2.8.6.
Opening a csproj files results in only the csproj file being opened. Bug seen on Windows and Mac versions
I don't think anything changed in 2.8.6 regarding opening project files. IIRC we never searched for the containing solution when opening a project file, but we did create a temporary solution container.
However, I don't think that's the issue reported here. The issue is that MD does not register itself as a file handler for project files on MacOS, though it's probably not very useful to do so without the aforementioned project handling.
lowering priority based on Michael's comment.

With this patch I can open csproj files both from the command line and when double-clicking on them in Finder.
I'm still not sure we should land this unless we also make MD find the containing sln for the csproj.

This bug was targeted for a past milestone, moving to the next active milestone.
I attempted to reproduce this issue based on the bug description with the latest Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Preview version 7.1, and I was unable to hit the problem. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this report and attach a reproduction, ideally starting with a new template project and then adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
