Is there any option/hidden thing to activate/show the ESSENTIAL file-order "open last"????
I cant believe that a 2021 SW dont have this entry????? Espacilly modern SWs which organizes the "relevant-"master"-files" in sub/sub-folders-projects.... I think BWS should implement a "native file-manager" for open/save.... and the opens dialog extract/present JUST all the project-files (in the MEGA/HYPER-folder called PROJECTS) not all the unfiltered folder-stuff from finder/explorer/linux....

Not sure, but i thing Adobe Bridge, had have such META-reader, which ignores all sub/sub-folders and other files from the OS-system.... and shows just filtered "relevant" files, ordered by suffix (or "kind") from thousends of sub/sub-folders INSIDE one HYPER-folder. In our case the (hyper, hyper...) BWS-Project-folder as starting point!
There is no limit to "open last "file".... you could also "open last import", open last export/bounce/..."
Also vice-versa... why not "save "duplicate/copy".... of CURRENT project (clips, presets, wav/bounce...) from current project to the project ZZZ in its-own sub/sub-folders ?????

Ok, i found this "hidden" dashbord option now ;-)
But its still a little bit long-windowed. why not the "recent projects" as a DIRECTLY file-menue item instead this needed extra-clicks for open dashbord and tab to "my name"?

It's EXACTLY the same number of clicks that it would take you otherwise.

Also, in Settings you can set up Bitwig to open at the last project you were working on.

I just click on the bitwig logo on the top of the window and can see the last 30-40 things I worked on.

It's really easy to use. And I also find bitwig the easiest DAW to switch between multiple open projects.

Perhaps you can edit and rephrase your first question? You make it sound like someone killed your dog.

And we all know how THAT ends... :D

You can see he wasn't aware at all of Recent Projects, I'm sure he never clicked on Bitwig logo either. He's used to doing it old-school, via drop-down menus up top.
