Now, when I "open"  a file [e.g. a text file] from Terminal or double click on it in the Finder, it opens a buffer in Aquamacs, but that buffer either does not initially display at all or if it does is included as a 2nd window [in the emacs sense] of an existing frame. I would prefer that all new files opened from the Finder display in a new frame [in the emacs sense], i.e., a new window in the OSX sense.  Any guidance on this? -- pr

Hi, Paul.

To do it from the menu: selection Options->Show Buffers in New Frames

To do it as elisp: (setq ns-pop-up-frames t)

Does that do what you want?
