"Same Window" and "New Window" options for open vault

When I open a vault, I would like the options for “Same Window” or “New Window”. New window is currently the default. Same window would replace the current vault in view with the new vault. This is not the request to view multiple vaults in one window.

This is helpful for two reasons:

  1. More quickly and easily navigate OS windows without multiple Obsidian instances
  2. More obvious which vault is going to open when you close Obsidian

Love this! It can get a little cluttered when switching between multiple files.

This would be a great easy workaround for the lack of tab support too. Not as good as tabs, but probably good enough.

I’m also on board with this idea. I’d really like the simple feature of being able to open multiple instances of an Obsidian within the same vault.

Is any luck with this? What the approximate date of release?

I also would love this to be an option. I though about it the moment I switched vaults, and I can see I’m not the only one. I feel like I naturally prefer that kind of workflow.
