Ask to select catalog on startup
« on: September 07, 2019, 07:20:54 PM »
Can we please have an option to ask for which catalog to open on startup.  Also provide a select list of previous catalogs and have an option to create a new one.

Why is the first part needed?  The last used Catalog(s) are already restored on startup.

As for the second part that's what the Catalog Management dialog is for.  You can access it from the Catalog->Manage Catalogs... command.

I generally work with many projects which each have their own directory structure with their own catalog.  When I start PM+ I would like to facility to choose which catalog (project) to work on rather than open the last used and then have to go and chose a different one.  This option can be turned on/off with a preference setting.
