I have several s/w projects. Each one has its own set of source files. I'd like a shortcut for each project, and that shortcut opens NPP with specific settings and set of files already loaded.
Something like a sessions.xml for each project.
I don't need to open multiple copies of NPP at the same time necessarily.
Can this be done?
From your post it looks like you'd need a config.xml per project, and it can't be done natively.
However, a plugin could rceive a "Switch to project xxx" command and manipulate a set of configfiles, after cosing and before reopening N++ - the way Plugin Manager operates, basically.
