Is there any documentation on how to use Project Windows?

I recently upgraded to the pro version of MultiMarkdown. Is there any documentation on how to set up a project window? I looked in Preferences under "Pro Features" and did not find anything. Should I be looking elsewhere?

    Brief response since I’m not at computer this weekend.

    Use the open folder command, but open a folder (as the name suggests) not a file. (As per your other message with the crash)

    Thanks for the quick response. It works as described. Once I selected
    the folder, I found the rest of the “Project Window” functionality
    self-explanatory. Very nice! It’s great to see the progress that
    MultiMarkdown has made over the past few years. I have used most of the
    markdown editors on the market and this one remains a favorite.

    Best wishes,


    Ps. If the sole intent of “Open Folder” is to create a Project
    Window, then maybe a name change to “Open Project,” might prove
    helpful? Just a thought….

    I recently purchased Multimarkdown Composer 4.5.6 from the AppleStore.
    The installation went well, but today I noticed that an older version
    (5.4.0) of Multmarkown is living on my system (MacOS 10.14.4). I am
    guessing the earlier version of Multimarkdown was installed in a prior
    iteration of the Composer (pre 4.x). To resolve the situation, I was
    going to grab the latest version of MultiMarkdown (6.x) from GitHub and
    install it, but that may not be the best approach. Do you have any

    Best wishes,

    Composer and MultiMarkdown are separate binaries. If MMD 5.4.0 is
    installed on your computer, it's because you installed it. Composer has
    MMD built-in -- it doesn't rely on a separate binary.

    If you want to use MMD from the command line, then I would recommend
    upgrading to version 6. But otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.
