You can organize workspaces in several ways. You can create and rename workspaces, switch between them and load them from a file. You can also quickly remove all the projects from a workspace.

You can have only one active workspace at a time.

Creating a new workspace

To create a new workspace:

  1. Select File > Workspace > New Workspace.

    The New Workspace dialog
  3. Specify the workspace name in the dialog. Click OK.
