Workspaces in lieu of Multiple Instances

Postby Will Fastie » Wed Mar 14, 2018 4:02 am

I have mentioned the absence of multiple instances in Rapid PHP as a deficiency, including in my review. I have also mentioned that I understand how difficult it might be to modify Rapid to achieve multiple instances.

That got me wondering what it was I really needed and what might suffice instead.

If I am working on a project today and I exit Rapid, when I start Rapid again the files that were in the editor are restored. That's handy.

By contrast, if I switch projects without leaving Rapid, my editing state from the first project is not restored when I return to it.

What if Rapid could remember a "workspace" for every project? Then I could switch between projects A, B, and C with impunity, resuming each project exactly where I left off.

I don't think this is as convenient as multiple instances but because Rapid seems to open projects, well, rapidly, it would be a very good alternative to multiple instances.

This request keeps coming up and although we were not able to include it for 2018, we will return to it for the next year's version. There are many ways to go about it and we need to choose the right one.
