Some ideas

Use the existing save box with a selectable project save box icon.
It would need to allow for a project fork, and the dragging of project
files to a new location, and recording the newly forked project name.
While saving, possibly warning of files that have been removed since
the last loading of files.
This would also allow the starting of a Lof/project with one initial
I think the saving the Lof's/Project would be done to Choices: and
selected from the icon bar menu. This might also provide easier access
to the project from another machine, though I'm not sure about how the
actual files would get found and shared.

Using F2 to text search the loaded files appeared to be very fast,
maybe it is an advantage to have them loaded?
Once more than a few files are loaded, there is a stack of windows,
maybe the ones that aren't being edited could be iconised before
and after and still have the benefit of being loaded, but with less
demands on the desktop space.

I am most recently versed with a C project in Geany but I think the
above could apply to any StrongEd project.
