Use this dialog to configure the Projectoptions, you can call it via the "Options"
menu item in the "Project" menu (6.5).
Some general stuff, e.g. the project name, the filename of the project, and which
files should be loaded when opening this project:
The project name has no effect, except it will be shown in the title bar of syn,
and in the workspace.
- Load none:
- no file will be loaded.
- Load all:
- all files will be loaded.
- As in last session:
- all files which was loaded when this project was
closed the last time will be loaded.
Use the "Parameters" text box to specify some default parameters to pass to a program
which is called via the Run command. It appends this to the command line like the
Parameters specified in the Parameters dialog (12.1)
, i.e. both are appended.
Use the "Before closing this Project execute" combobox to choose a tool which will
be executed when you close this project. This may be useful when you compile a
project, with a compiler which generates lots of intermediate files, and want to
clean up the directory. You can use a batch file or a DOS command here.
At this page you can add, remove and swap the files in the project. The order
in the list is the order in which the files are loaded, i.e. the last file will

at this page, you can use for each project separate programs to run the
project. The programs of the syntax settings are not used as default values. When

You can have for each project additional tools, which you can call via a separate
tools toolbar. When not at least one tool is configured this toolbar is not
visible. The project tools acts similar to the usual tools you can define with the
"Configure Tools" dialog (12.4).
Limitations of the project tools:
If you use a project tool to insert a string, don't use the strings
"|CRLF|" and "|SPACE|", these strings are used to format the
string into a format which can be saved to an INI file. This limitation
doesn't exit for the usual tools, which are saved in the registry.
- You can't assign a shortcut to these tools, because they are generated
- There is no corresponding menu.
