Yes, it's almost exactly like VS. Right-click on the solution in the
solution pad, and in the "Add..." sub-menu you will see "Add Existing
Project" and "Add New Project".

Embedded help is just for Mono class libraries (it's also accessible
with F1 in the text editor). The docs for MD itself are at
http://monodevelop.com/Documentation and unfortunately aren't very

The embedded help browser requires a GTK web browser widget such at
GtkHtml, GtkMozEmbed or WebKit-GTK. Unfortunately none is known to run
(easily) on the Mac. As a fallback, we might be able to launch an
external browser pointed at http://www.go-mono.com/docs/.
