    Project Bin Settings

    shooternz Level 6
      Does CS4 remeber the custom Column settings in the project window between re-opening or changing Projects?

      Currently this is driving me insane (in CS3) as I work on 5 projects on and off during the same day(s).

          I can either assume that it is fixed in CS4 .... or it not fixed in CS4 and it does not worry anyone else anymore. (apart from me)

          Yesterdays issues become less important because of new issues I guess.

            This was a pet peeve of mine in cs3 also. Youll be happy to know cs4's columns are sticky; they remember how you set them.

            And, when you load a project, you can elect to import their workspace or not.

              Brilliant news - thanx Curt.

              I am slowly getting the "confidence" to install CS4.

              (I am far too busy to deal with new or old issues)

                Curt,

                That is good news. I had taken to building a "template" Project with all of the settings, like Columns, etc., that I needed, and then opening that and doing a Save_As, before I began any Importing. That still might be necessary to keep from having to build the Bin structure for each Project. Same way I do it for Encore and the common folder (Bins in PP) structure. I hate having to do repetitious work like that - 'cause I'm lazy!

                Thanks,

                Hunt

                  Bill, I used to do the same thing.

                  Here's another trick PrCS4 can do:

                  Create a template project with opening sequence or closing sequence or title sequence; whatever.

                  Open a new Pr project (columns are remebered) and Import just a single Seq from your template project. You dont have to import the entire project any more. Pr CS4 is smart enough to import all the assets associated only with the single sequence you import. I find this very helpful.
