Description Neal 2012-01-06 14:27:36 UTC

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.

Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-01-06 15:17:09 UTC
I think it only leaves open the documents that were not part of the prior solution.
Comment 2 Neal 2012-01-06 15:22:29 UTC
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.
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2012-05-02 10:39:39 UTC
Are the files which are left open regular source code files? Or are they windows like the 'Review Changes' version control window?
Comment 4 Neal 2012-05-02 10:47:07 UTC
Code Documents (tabs)

See also bug 2968.
Comment 6 Rune Skovbo Johansen 2012-05-10 07:53:39 UTC
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.
Comment 7 David Siegel 2012-09-11 17:25:20 UTC
To reproduce:

  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.
Comment 8 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-10-02 17:27:34 UTC
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.
Comment 9 Lluis Sanchez 2012-10-03 03:56:37 UTC
Closing a solution now closes all open project or non-project files. The other bug David reported is also fixed.
