Projects

A project in WM equals any one folder (directory) of your file system.
WM won't deal with subfolders; you can have them but Jumps Window won't show them.

To start a new a project:

  • press CTRL+P to add a folder (=project)
  • or simply open a file image its parent folder will be added to the projects/folders list

CTRL+LEFT/RIGHT step through the recent projects/folders list
ALT+DOWN open the recent folders pop-up list
CTRL-click an item remove it from the list
   
CTRL+F open containing folder of the current file
CTRL+P add project folder to folder list

Files

By default Jumps will show .txt, .md, and .markdown files.
To see more file types, enter their extension:

File Order

To re-order files in the Jumps Window Window:

  • drag&drop a file onto another
  • the file you dragged will be positioned above

Or use keystrokes:

  • CTRL+X to cut the selected file
  • CTRL+V to paste it (above the currently selected)

To move a file from the bottom repository to the upper project section:

  • enter/open the file
  • remove it's draft or repo - tag

Your custom file order is stored in _PROJECT.DAT , located in each of your project folders.
Since every folder has it's own _PROJECT.DAT , you can transfer individual projects to other computers without losing your file order (scene structure etc)

Merge Files

The content of merged files will be copied into a new file

  • all existing files stay in place
  • the merged file is named in the format _MERGED YYYY-MM-DD hh-mm

Not included are:
