Hello!
I dont like the feature opening multiple projects..
I find it VERY messy and make mistakes very fast..
Is there a way to turn this off?
Adobe is forcing me to use the multple projects.. I Dont want this at all!

The easiest way i am aware is to only use one project at a time. If i open Project A and need to make a change to Project B i simply close Project A and open Project B and when done, close Project B and open Project A again. By doing this i only have one project open at a time. It´s a workflow thing. Ignoring to close projects and just open up project after project is a recepie for problems, at least for me and that´s why i always avoid it. 🙂

 

The direct answer is: As far as i know there is no Preference setting to stop the end user from opening multiple projects.

I'm in the same boat. It's frustrating as hell.

 

Also, Averdahl, changing 25years of muscle memory to ''simply close project a before opening project b'' isn't helpful.

I understand that, but since it´s not possible to disable this feature i was just trying to share a way to avoid issues. Since you are frustrated as hell by this feature trying to change the 25 years of muscle memory may be a good idea until it get´s fixed, if it ever does.

 

To see a change, follow the links Peru Bob provided earlier in this thread and upvote the request or create a new one.

Sorry about that. If you have not upvoted the feature request already, please add your voice. I apologize if this mulitple projects feature gets your goat that badly. I didn't mean to be flippant. I know how rote memory is. I let the engineers know. 

 

Thanks,
Kevin

The problem is, when you work in a production house that multiple operators working across multiple machines and sometimes on as many as 15 projects at a time, to work out which bin belongs to what, which project conttains which asset, and on which machine ... it's a terrible 'feature'....and i use the word 'feature' quite quite wrongly.

 

Why theere wasn't an official simple toggle off is beyond me.

 

I didn't care that much whilst the debug mode fix worked - but to disable that with no alternative is beyond frustrating. There are lots of requests to remove it.

Hi,

Your request is worthwhile, so, please put in the feature request precisely as you'd like it to work, OK? A preference probably could work, I think. That said, I am not an engineer, a manager, a head of anything....nor am I even on the Premiere Pro team. 

 

That said, I am a customer advocate for Premiere Pro. I have told you how to get their attention and I let them know of your issues. So, I have the engineer's attention on the User Voice post at the top of the page (there are others too, if you search). Please let me know if there's anything more I can do to facilitate that exchange.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

I did make a post on there --- then they deleted it and scolded me in an email for posting about the console and debug tools.

You can make a feature request for "a preference to swich off multiple projects" without mentioning the debug tools, can't you? Please try again focusing on what you actually want the feature to do and I will try and add some detail for the team ASAP. 

 

Cheers,
Kevin

The option is already there, but it's not working since the last 2021 version.

I think it's a bug. 

In the console under Debug Database View you have the option called: "FE.AllowMultipleOpenProjects"

I have this unchecked (false) since it was there, but it's not working anymore. 😞

 

Cheers
