saving opened files as a project

    When working on a customer's website for a specific set of changes, I usually open up certain files (website pages) at the same time within Tools. If I need to switch to another customer's changes, I will need to open up another set of files to work on.

    What I would like to be able to do, is to save the first set of files on Customer 1's website, so that I can switch to work on Customer 2's site for a while, then come back later to work on the same set of files for Customer 1.

    Is there a way to maybe save the files you have open for one customer as a project? So you can easily open up the same group of files whenever you want? That way I can have two projects, and can switch back and forth with the set of files I need to work on relative to each Customer. Right now, I basically close down all the files for Customer 1, go work on my other website for Customer 2, then later, have to reopen each individual file I used previously on Customer 1.

    I have tried to read about the projects section, but can't work out if it will do what I want.

    Thanks,

      Projects can definitely help you with this. Once you create projects and
      add files to them, you can easily switch back and forth. You can even
      keep multiple project windows open at the same time.

      I'd recommend creating virtual folders (green folder icons) to organize
      your files.

      • Select "File > Projects > New project"
      • Type a name, pick a label color and click OK
      • Double click "Create virtual folders"
      • Type a name like "my files" and click OK

        From here you can open "my files" virtual/green folder in your project
        and add files to it. Because you've created a virtual folder, you have
        the flexibility of adding files from any folder on your computer. If you
        had created a local folder, you'd be limited to files under that
        particular folder.

      It might take a bit of time to get the projects set up but I think
      you'll be happy with the end result. And if you assign blue to Customer
      1 and red to Customer 2, the files you open from those projects will
      show the colors to make it easier to see which project they belong to.
