6. Project Manager
TextMaestro displays two trees on a dockable window, accessed by two corresponding tabs - (1) Projects, and (2) Accounts. Below is a sample:
Projects tree allows you to define a Project, which may contain a set of Sessions. For example, above Miscellaneous is a Project, in which Music is a Session along with others.
Using right click on My Vault (which is a fixed name), on a project or on a session, you can execute certain tasks on this Project tree. (Give it a try). Conceptually,
Above Projects tree displays My vault, projects and sessions. Baskets and file-items are displayed on the two list-boxes on the right hand side.
The following dialog is displayed for above Properties...
Comment 2: In addition to Default Session Attributes, each session also contains Session file information. (See Leaf File where session information is saved above). TextMaestro stores session information in a certain format as described below:
(i) Default Session Attributes of all sessions are saved in a file named
(ii) File information for each session is saved in a separate file.
For example, if your environment has fifty sessions, expect to see one file called _tmt_master.txt with all the Default Session Attributes, and fifty files with corresponding session file information. The former is called master file, and the latte,r leaf files.
Comment 3: Note that a session can have multiple files. Each file has its set of File Attributes. Files are listed on TextMaestro main view (See TextMaestro Overview). Based on the access information of a file in the list, Default Session Attributes change. Next time you add a local or remote file to the session, Default Session Attributes are used for its File Attributes.
Clean My Vault...
As noted in Comment 2 above, file information of a session is saved in a leaf file (a.k.a. file-residence). The name of leaf files is automatically determined from the project index, session index and session name. However, when user renames, deletes or moves a session, name of file-residence is not renamed. This does not break anything. But if the user decides to synchronize the state of session manager and names of all the file-residence, Clean My Vault... is the tool. This process will update each session file information to reflect the corresponding new name of file-residence. It is recommended that user occasionally repairs the file-residence names.
