Description peter josvai 2023-04-21 20:56:57 UTC
it would be great to be able to open "projects", which 
would mean that a couple of files (documents) would open...

or we could add documents to a list which would open together
call them "document lists".. "document groups"

but in NAVIGATOR we could handle it all.. 
like a playlist

just an idea...
Comment 1 peter josvai 2023-04-22 05:06:08 UTC
the approach could start with the "windows" menu...
where we see all the open documents

there could be perhaps a "create session" menu item...

and the session could be set as "autosave" or "persistent" (just making up words :))

- -
documents being linked in session files / session documents / session navigators would have their session(s) listed in properties window...
one main session and many possible others

- - 

Navigator could be the place where sessions could be handled, edited..

BUT recently used windows in the "starting menu" too offer this possibility perhaps...

and session files / session documents / session organizers could be made of normal documents...
but could later on saved as session organizers perhaps with their own extension
one other possible starting point could be, where this concept already exists is the "restore documents" window and "system"

just sketchy ideas...
we'll see if others join in :)

for a beginning I'd be happy if I could easily copy a document's hard link (local relative/absolute link in the file system)...
into a collector document... as clickable links...

+1 to "Windows" menu:

perhaps, for a beginning, a "send file list to clipboard" 
could be introduced...

and we could save the list in a document as a session organizer document

and in that list, file-links would be present
