Scapple for Windows Beta Version beta.

Not sure if you consider this a bug or not but if I launch the application then file->open recent it launches another copy of the application. This isn't standard practice. Opening recent should open the document in the current application not launch another.

If your intention was to allow multiple open documents then you should still have one application and use tabs for the multiple open documents.

I would agree with an empty board, and I do think that is already on the list. As for opening something with a board that isn't empty, it is in fact a standard to open a new copy of the application. Just to provide one well-known example: if you open one .doc file in Word and then use Ctrl-O to open another, it doesn't replace the contents of that window, it opens a new one.
