Open screen shared files in Xcode, VSCode, and more

Following along as someone scrolls through code in an IDE is fine, but it’s often helpful to pull up a local copy in parallel. Now, when someone is screen sharing files in Xcode, VSCode, Sublime Text, and other document-based editors, viewers will have an option to open their local copy of that file in their own IDE.

Just be sure to select “Enable link sharing for supported apps” when selecting what to screen share. We’re happy to look into adding support for other editors too—just let us know.
