Unfortunately not right now.  It's on our list to fix both drag and
drop and double click (the latter is partially there but if I'm
remembering correctly ran into problems before the last release).

As a MacOS X user myself, I would appreciate those features. Those  
files MacOS has been instructed to open with WingIDE, should of  
course be opened in the current instance of Wing (if there is one).

On the other hand, one has to open several instances of Wing in order  
to work on several projects at once (with the glitch that if Wing is  
set up to open the last project at startup, the same project will be  
opened twice until one of the instance is switched to another  
project: this results in the other instance detecting changes to the  
project file and bringing the save dialogue, which I find quite  
annoying, time and again).

I don't know how these two contradicting behaviours could be reconcile.
