What is a project? In UltraEdit, a project is a virtual "storage container" allowing you to group and manage associated files (for example, a development project you're working on) and your workspace for those files. Support for projects is tightly integrated throughout other areas in UltraEdit, such as Ctags for project files, Find in files in project files, Function listing for project files, Intellitips, and much more. You can add files and/or folders to a project.

Project support consists of the project itself (i.e., the files contained within it) and the workspace. The workspace consists of all files that should be opened when the project is loaded as well as the view state of project items in the Project pane in the File view. The workspace functionality saves the state of all open files in the project file when the project is closed including window position, caret position, and which files are open. These are then reloaded the next time the project is reloaded. Files in the workspace do not have to be specifically added to the project.
