I'm not a fan of pop-ups like this but I guess if it only shows up one time it isn't going
to kill me.  It would be great to have a tab open the first time a version of Studio is run
with a welcome page showing the release notes etc which would in this case include a note
about this change in behaviour.  That way you don't have to dismiss it if you just want to
do something.  I can imagine that people might want to open up the preferences themselves
to see this option before dismissing the pop-up telling them about it, for example.

Does this mean that Studio will be capable of opening multiple entry editors at the same time?
 That would be useful.

I wouldn't have thought this kind of option would be changed often enough by anyone to warrant
it being on the toolbar.  I don't think it will bother me either way though.
