Issue ID




[Mac] A new script is not being opened as a different tab when using VSCode

Package: VS Code


How to reproduce:
1. Create a new Unity Project
2. Make sure VSCode is set as a default text editor
3. Create two scripts
4. Open the first script, then open the second one

Expected results: Both scripts are opened in VSCode in separate tabs
Actual results: Only first opened script is shown in VSCode

Reproducible with: 2019.2.0a12, 2019.2.0f1, 2019.3.0a11 (package ver 1.0.7)
Not reproducible with: 2017.4.31f1, 2018.4.5f1, 2019.1.13f1, 2019.2.0a11

Additional notes:
1. It was tested on OS X 10.14.2 and 10.14.4. The issue reproduces on 10.14.2. On 10.14.4 VSCode opens it's welcome screen only
2. Package versions 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 throw Win32Exceptions on a Mac, however, the issue does not reproduce

Resolved in package version 1.1.2

    Never mind, I updated to Unity 2019.2.4f1 and the version 1.1.2 is now available in the package manager. Thanks!

    AMROC: Thanks for the info! Which version of Unity are you running? The version 1.1.2 isn't available to me on the Package Manager (Unity 2019.2.0f1) and doesn't appear on the package changelog yet. That's why I thought it wasn't available to the public yet.

    MUCKEL: It seems the version 1.1.2 isn't available to the public yet:

    Meanwhile you can workaround this by running this script after each time you open Unity (set PROJECT_PATH with your project's path)

    sed -i '' 's/\$\"\\\"{GetDefaultApp}/$"-n \\\"{GetDefaultApp}/g' ${PROJECT_PATH}/Library/PackageCache/com.unity.ide.vscode@1.0.7/Editor/VSCodeScriptEditor.cs

    Basically, Visual Studio Code doesn't work with Unity on macOS.
    Since editing scripts seems like a quite vital functionality for any IDE, how does this issue still exist after three unity releases is a mystery to me.

    as pointed out here

    this seams to fix it : Arguments = $"-n \"{GetDefaultApp}\" --args {arguments}",

    I can confirm it as well.
    This is very annoying.

    Can confirm, this happens since I updated Unity to 2019.2.
