Good idea?
Unfortunately this would not be an easy feature to implement :(

The reason is there are many other Zeus features that interact with the workspace (i.e. debugger, tags building, project building, project execute, scripting etc etc).

So to make this change would be just too massive in terms of code rework :(
I find myself wanting to do this.
I too find myself wanting to do this and what I end up doing is running many copies of Zeus.

What I do a lot is use the Tools, Run Second Instance of Zeus menu to start another instance of Zeus and then in that new instance open the workspace using the Workspace menu.

You can also open a workspace from the Windows Explorer by right clicking on the zwi file and using the Open in Current Zeus Session option.

As the name suggests it opens the workspace in the current session but by changing the registry that could be made to open the workspace in a new Zeus instance.

Cheers Jussi

I understand. I'll try loading multiple instances.
