    fork project

      well, what looks unclear to me - if I can decide at one point, that there will be two devices with different logic, schematic, etc, but both are derivatives of what I have for a moment.

         

      I can't just copy a project to a different directory - some paths will be broken then. I have to copypaste schematics and code. even worse when it's user library in use...

         

      what if there is a button in the menus, which brings me my project with the name and path of choice? or a button to 'recover' brocken links in the already copied project?

          Use the "Create Workspace Bundle" function from Creator. you may copy your actual project uncompressed into a new folder.

            ender11,

               

            All libraries have relative path. If you save project in same root, new project will work ok. for example

               

            ..\RootFolder

               

                 \MyProject1.cyproj

               

                 \MyProject2.cyproj

               

             

               

            or

               

            \RootFolder

               

                \MyProj1\MyProject1.cyproj         

               

                \MyProj2\MyProject2.cyproj         

               

             

               

            Steps to save a copy of the project

               

            1. Select project .proj in the project explorer (left window).

               

            2. Goto File->save as .... Save it under new name. The IDE windows will get updated.

               

            3. Close workspace (You get empty IDE). When  asked "Save workspace?" - NO.

               

            4. Open new project.
