The Picklist stores the last opened files and displays them in a list, so it is easy for you to pick what file to open. To open a file, just click with the left mouse button on the filename in the list. The file will open in the Project Window and the Picklist window will automatically close. You can open the Picklist from anywhere in the program by selecting "File | Picklist" from the main menu or by pressing Ctrl-L hotkey on the keyboard. You can resize the window and it will remember it's position and size next time you open it.

|Create||Click on this button to create a new project file. The file is automatically added to the list. You will be prompted with a file selection window where you can select the location and name for the new project file.

The search entry above the file list can be used to filter the list. Note that the search only filters on the filenames. In the screenshot below it has filtered everything out of the list except filenames that include "auto" The filter is not case sensitive. To clear the filter, click on the red X button on the right of the locator or use the Ctrl-R key. To jump to the search entry use the Ctrl-F key.
