    Hi Chami

    I've actually (only now, belatedly) started using the Projects as you intended in HK Tools, and I'm now a convert, it's sucking all my workflow out of my old FTP client and making life that much easier... Well done.

    However, I am starting to rack up a heap of projects in the Open Project pane, and I was wondering if it was possible to columnise these entries to get more on the same pane rather than a single project per line view... My project names are all coded by 4 or 5 letter acronyms, either singly or in pairs depending on how many subprojects a client may have, so I would rarely need more than 10 characters a line, which to me then indicates if they all floated rather than were 100% divs, with maybe a user-configurable width setting, these project entries could stack quite well. I have about 70 or so FTP connections to manage, with at least double that in projects, so it's going to quickly end up a real scrolling nightmare as I continue to add connections, which is OK, I'm used to that, but hence the question to see if HK Tools as the ability to be even better...

    Many thanks

      I thought I'd take a moment to create a video for this. Sometimes a
      [video] is worth 1000 [of my] words :)

      Hope this helps.
