Profile in project

Hi

I have a question. Is it possible to create profile in project? What does mean profile. For example I work with 3 files by task A. At now, I want to change to do task B with another 3 files, but in future I want go back to do task A.


So:
Profile "Task A" -> open file 1,2,3
Profile "Task B" -> open file 4,5,1

I want to switch quickly. I know, that favorite is, but profile is diffrent.

Hi there,

In PhpStorm it's called Context: Tools | Tasks & Contexts

Contexts are what I want :) Thanks!

But I have another question.
I saved context as Blablabla (f.e. 3 tabs). I opened next 2 tabs and I want save with new tabs on the same context. How can I do this?

Just switch to another task/context (and back, if required/desired) -- IDE will save current tabs automatically. In other words -- IDE automatically saves current tabs/etc to the Context automatically when current Task/Context gets closed/switched to another.

If you want to save it right now (without switching between tasks/contexts) -- just save it entering the same name.

It doesn't work :( I had load context (with 3 tabs), opened another 2 and load another context. After that, I returned to first context, but I have opened only 3 tabs (without 2 new tabs).

If I saved with the same name, I have 2 options with the same name.

Hmm .. OK.

I'm not using actual Context .. but rather Tasks. Because I do not have any VCS integration, for me it works just as Context would do (at least I do like how it does). Most likely this does the actual difference, not sure.

Can you try the same?

If I saved with the same name, I have 2 options with the same name.

Yes, you are correct -- after saving it 2 times, it now has listed it twice. Don't know -- maybe save it at the same name .. and then delete older one (the Load Context menu shows which one is newer) -- not ideal, of course.

Context is like task for me. So I have to delete and save with new name. Thanks for reply.
