Project Handling preferences
The Project Handling pane contains the following project startup and template preferences:
Startup Action pop-up menu: Defines what happens when Logic Pro is opened.
Do Nothing: Nothing happens when Logic Pro is opened; you need to create a new project, or open an existing project or template.
Open Most Recent Project: Opens the project you were working on when you last closed Logic Pro.
Open Existing Project: Shows the Open dialog, which you can use to browse for an existing project.
Create New Project from Template: Opens the Templates dialog.
Create New Empty Project: Opens an empty project with the New Tracks dialog, which you use to specify the type and number of new tracks to add.
Create New Project using Default Template: Opens the default template and the Save As dialog, which you use to name and save your project.
Ask: Opens a Startup dialog, offering each of the above options.
Default Template button: Allows you to choose a default template when Create New Project using Default Template is chosen from the Startup Action pop-up menu.
Auto Backup pop-up menu: Defines the number of alternatives that are saved as part of the project.
When Show Advanced Tools is selected in Advanced preferences, the following is available:
“Export MIDI File saves single MIDI Regions as Format 0” checkbox: If only one MIDI region is selected when you choose File > Export > Selection as MIDI File, the contents of the region are saved in MIDI file format 0. This file format is guaranteed to be compatible with every MIDI file player.
When Advanced Editing is selected in Advanced preferences, the following is available:
“When opening a project, ask to ‘Close current project(s)?’” checkbox: If selected and you open a new project before closing the old one, a dialog asks whether or not the current project should be closed. If unselected, you aren’t prompted and the current project remains open.
