The title of the question pretty much sums up my situation. I'm in Italy, I wish to travel to a non-Schengen European country. My visa for Italy is a multiple entry 'D' long stay. I have applied for the residence permit but haven't gotten it yet.
Can I leave Italy and re-enter without any problem?
The question is similar to this one here Can I leave the Schengen with my Type D Multi Entry visa from Spain
