Opening a new project opens inside of old project

Recently updated to newest Premiere.  Sometimes I will open a project while a current project is already open.  I just go to FILE: OPEN PROJECT.  There has never been any issue and the new project opens up and the old project goes away.

Now, when I open a new project, the old project stays. So I'm seeing all of the files, etc. 

So I have to completely close Premiere, then open it up and open the new file.

Not a big deal, just curious if this is a bug or what.

That is how the new version works.  You can open multiple projects.

honestly, I don't get how this is answering the question. When I open a new project and it contains all the files from the one I am running it is also not seperated. When I delete files in the new project they will also be deleted in the other. It is pretty weird, I don't really see any sense in that... does anyone know how to solve this issue?

I've never opened a new project that had anything in it at all ... I've had to import things to it. Which puzzles me about your post.

 

So I've never had that exact situation. And when I did copy say a sequence from one project to another, it didn't "connect" the projects.

 

I'm mostlly working in Productions mode these days, which totally gets around any project to project issues though.

If you want to close a project, you need to simply use the menu options to close the project. You can do so from the Project tab in the Project panel or the main menu.

 

Closing a project doesn't close Premiere, just that one project.

 

And opening a project has nothing to do with closing a project.

The same thing is happening to me. As a new user, I am easily confused and this is very frustrating.

I have a kbsc for closing project before opening another project.

I wish they made an option to disable multiple projects.

Or you can just close your current project first, before opening the new project by going to the menu File > Close Project.

Another option past what MtD suggested, is that if there are multiple projects open, you'll have multiple Project tabs in the Project panel, and you can simply close the one you want closed from there also.

There isn't a 'fix' per se. In stand-alone or standard project mode, Premiere allows multiple projects to be open at the same time. So you need to manually close and open projects and pay attention to which project you are technically working in at any moment if you have multiple projects open.

 

But I'm so used to working in Productions mode that the old stand-alone projects seems like ancient history to me anymore. I don't understand working that way actually. Because in Productions mode this is never a problem.

 

It does take a bit of relearning your organizational practices. But is so slick to use once you get into it.

I just had the same problem and found your post. I then figured it out. Click on the three lines next to the name of your new project in the media browser (bottom left panel) and click on close all other projects.
