Title: Independent GUI windows
Post by: Milou on Jun 10, 2013, 10:09 pm
Hello,

I'm currently working with an Uno and Nano simultaneously for wireless communication.

What is really annoying is, that if I change something with the communication framework I have to set the board to Arduino Uno and the port to COM 14 sending the code, than seting the board to Arduino Nano and switching the port to COM 15. If I than want to change code again I start cycling around from beginning.

Would it be possible to "disconnect" the GUI windows so that I can program one board type and COM port with one window and the other with a second window?

If yes: Please do so!

The more advanced programming environments have this kind of support. Like my arduino eclipse plugin.
Best regards

Try running two simultaneous instances of Arduino.
