Open recent project in new session.

Maybe I miss something, but with Archicad 23 I can open 2 or more sessions when opening Archicad, while working on a open project I can open an old project in a new session from the opening dialog but having to search it on the disk, but I can't open a recent project in a new session (without searching it on the disk). In my opinion it would be much more useful have a way to open a recent project in a new session, without having to search it on disk, for example holding down a modifier key (alt/option) while selecting it in recent items menu.

Do you have this option turned on in your Work Environment?

Don't recent projects populate the list in the: File> Open > pulldown menus?

Yes they do, but unless you have the option ticked in the Work Environment, it will close the current file and open the recent file in the same Archicad.

Of course not... so many years without knowing this
Now I've been wondering how many years and from what version does this option exist... tried until 18 and it is there.
I looked many time how to open a second recent item without searching it on disk, but never thought that there is an option to enable this behavior. Sorry putting a so dumb poll.
But maybe, reverse the behaviour with a modifier key could be useful... sometimes.
