Each project folder can have its own .tm_properties file with its
own configuration, but note that, as Allan said, symbolic links to
folders are currently not expanded.
Is "project folder" different from any other, other than the .tm_properties
and the fact that it is a folder rather than a file?
Not sure if this makes sense in your context but maybe you can try
changing your workflow and treating your shared folder
as a project on
its own (having its own window open along other projects, etc). I
have a couple projects that depend on other projects and I work this
way in order to have Go To File and searching capabilities in the
OK, sounds reasonable.
presume my project starts in my home directory. Then I can
have only one project there, specified by the .tm_properties file, which
would have to include my multiple folders. Thus my home directory can be
project folder for only a single project.
Just curious: why would you want your home folder to be a project
folder? One usually wants the home folder to have one or more project
folders inside. I have a folder for each project and all of them are
in a Developer folder in my home folder.
My home folder has many folders, many of which I'd like to have be in
multi-folder projects. So ~/bin and ~/notes are a pair, while a second
pair are ~/bank (receipts) and ~/config (a collection of configuration
files used elsewhere)
If I understand correctly, I'd have to have a .tm_properties file for each
pair, not possible given the file hierarchy style of projects
Third, a work around would be to simply have a
separate folder per
containing symbolic links (ln -s) to the folders
I want in my project.
This is not a workaround, this is the expected way to
A-ha! OK, so I can make a TM folder that contains a folder for each of my
TM projects, each of which in turn have symlinks to my actual folders?
That fixes everything.
Sorry: one last question: I'd like my projects to
be double-clickable to
> them. Can I do that?
Interesting, I'll look into that. Thanks!
I know this can be done by using the Favorites
feature. From Mate's
drawer, you can navigate then right click a folder and add it to
favorites, and all your favorites are available from the heart icon in
the bottom right, or from File, Open Favorites... .
Hope that helps,
Thanks for the help, I appreciate the time & effort.
