I would like to ask if it's possible to keep the Select project window open after you've run a project to load.

Current behavior is: Select (or create) a project, Project selection screen closes

Requested behavior: Select (or create) a project, but have the project selection window stays open

Reason for this request, Sometimes you require to work with multiple projects and you simply want to open a second editor / project in order to see something or copy something. Right now once you select or create your project you are forced to re run popcornfx to open the selection screen.

Hope that makes sense let me know and i can clarify more if needed.

Let me know if this is something that already exists, Otherwise i would like to request this as a feature please.

it's an interesting request.
something more like UE4 or cryengine's launcher?

maybe we can just not close that window, and have it behave like a separate "launcher" application that stays opened until you close it, and launches as many editors as you open projects.

I'll discuss this with the team next week and post an update back here. What's sure is that if we do this, it won't be until at least v1.11

thanks for the suggestion :)

I am ok with that, It will speed our workflow because otherwise we have to constantly relaunch a new "launcher" for opening more than 1 editors.

Okay, so, this has made it in v1.11, but it's not the default behavior.
you can now right-click on a project and select "open in new editor window", we might also add a button next to the delete and upgrade buttons as a shortcut to do this in a single click.

does that sound like it'd do the job for you?
Yea as long as it's there it works for me.
