How to reopen the Coverage Results Browser?

Once I've closed the Coverage Results Browser, the only way to reopen it seems to be to run more coverage.  Is there menu item or something that I'm missing?

Thanks,
Josh

Hello Josh,
If you've closed unit test session window you can reopen it using Ctrl+Alt+R or Ctrl+Alt+T (depending on your shortcut scheme) or ReSharper->Unit Tests->Unit Test Sessions menu.
Besides that you can always save resulting snapshot to the file and work with it without rerunning coverage analysis.
(dotCover->Open Coverage Snapshot)

I am referring to this dialog.  It's not the Unit Test Session or Explorer dialog.

I got this dialog by choosing dotCover->Cover Startup Project.  Said project started up, I interacted with it, and then closed it.  At that point the window above showed up, allowing me to browse the coverage results.  (This same dialog may be available as part of those unit test panels as well.  Unfortunately right now coverage via unit test runner is not working for me, so I can't see it there.  I've submitted that issue to the tracker separately.)

My use case is, I clicked the 'Highlight code' button and closed the Coverage Results Browser.  Now I can't turn off 'Highlight code' because I can't bring the Coverage Results Browser back.  I also can't continue to browse the results once I've dismissed the CRB, unless I rerun the startup program.

Hello Josh,
Thank you for the feedback!
From the current point of view it is supposed that coverage results are disposed right after you close the window.
Highlighting should also be removed in this case - an issue has been already created for this in our tracker.
If you'd like to work with snapshot afterwards, it's possible to save it.

Hello Ruslan,

On the point about "coverage results are disposed right after you close the window", this seems inconsistent with Resharper's behavior.  For example, when R#'s Find Usages window is closed it is not actually disposed.  The inner tabs of Find Usages results stay available until each is individually dismissed.

Thanks,
Josh
