If you middle-click on a launcher item, a new instance will be opened even if you already have another instance opened.

Middle click worked. Is there key combo? I see Super+Shift+[1..0] should do it in Unity but it doesn't seem to work in Unity 2D. – user15361 Apr 29 '11 at 17:37

Ctr+Alt+T will open you a Terminal ( as much as you want)

Also check this wallpaper out, for hotkeys in unity: Unity keyboard/mouse shortcuts

Don't know if they work in Unity 2D also, but i think so.

The wallpaper is useful but it is not really an answer to my question as it is for Unity 3D. Also the tabs in a Terminal is irrelevant. 10x for the attempt though. – user15361 Apr 29 '11 at 19:31
yea, i didn't know that they do not work in Unity 2D. – Dani3l Apr 30 '11 at 10:08
