I'm starting to use Project Templates in a big way for comps and project orgainization, one concern I have is that if I were to backup my work to another directory using save as / copy media, I have to manually remember to copy the TT folder.

I am a space cadet, I will likely lose my templates at some point for some project.

Hopefully this will be native to REAPER at some point, but perhaps for now with the extention could you add some options in the PROJECTS dialog to save or copy the media, track Templates, etcetera?

This way we could back up project directly from Resources. Set the new autosave project directory, autofill everything else from the project directory, and save it all to the new directory.

Thanks.

Thanks for entering an issue, James. You beat me to it, indeed!

I did preliminary tests, good news: we can attach any type of files to RPP projects, not only media files!
Now I have to figure out the best way to offer this feature (it won't be to "add some options in the PROJECTS dialog" though: not possible via the API, that's not a biggie anyway).

coming soon ( r1064 ), let me know what you think when it will be released!

note: on save as / copy media, all attached resource files are saved too, but it'd be great to export a bookmark file in there too. Will see that later: the only issue is that it first requires bookmark file export/import features haha!
that would just be nice though, it is useful as is, well I hope!

Finally got around to poking around at this. This is excellent! the implementation so far is beyond my expectations.

I just started using bookmarks now with this new beta, they just didn't "click" in my head at first.

now I have to go and make bookmarks for the projects I've been working on... but that's easy. :)

This brings up a few questions. is there a limit to the number of bookmarks? and is there a way to manage them?

Great, thanks James!
Yes, there are 32 bookmarks max ATM (there is no real good reason for this limitation, well apart from fiiling billions of items a dropdown box ;-)
Bookmark management: yuo can just add/delete/rename ATM. What I have in mind is to replace the current dropdown with a small list (à la "shortcuts" left list view in the Media Explorer for ex.).

PS: I saw the posts in the Revolver tracks but it seems you indeed caught the bookmark idea now!
It is indeed a better idea to make a custom bookmark because all S&M "slots actions" use that default/stock bookmark "Track Template" (*). So if you remove, or move, or etc.. slots/files in there you will break all your slot actions (which are the main job of the Resources window, BTW).

(*) Well, you can also tie slot actions to any bookmark ( http://forum.cockos.com/showpost.php?p=1157737&postcount=40 ): you got that too but it's a bit "advanced", so using the default "Track Template" bookmark is possible but might confuse new comers..
