In a number of text editors that I have used on my Mac, if you open the application dock icon context menu, one of the options in the menu is create a new file or a new window. It would be great if Atom also had this capability as I use it a fair bit.
Justification / Process
This would be a very useful when using multiple desktops (Spaces in Mac parlance) and you want to open a new Atom window in a desktop that doesn’t have any Atom windows. As of v0.129.0, the (or at least my) current process is:
- switch back to the desktop that has Atom open,
- create a new Atom window, and
- move the new window to the required desktop.
The new process I would like to use is:
- open dock application context menu and choose new window/new file.
