Q: When you open a file that is the main
file for another project, Builder in its sillyness wants
to close your project and load the one associated with
that file. How can I open the file without causing Builder
to close my current project and open the one associated
with that file?
A: Aha! You have to know the secret handshake.
If you do a File|Open and leave the default 'files of
type' as: "Borland C++ (*.cpp;*.bpg;*.bpk;*.bpr)",
the IDE will always think you want to open a different
Project even if you select a "cpp" file.
If you change the selection 'files of type' to:
"Borland C++ Source (*.cpp)", the IDE will
simply open the "cpp" file only and leave
your currently open project alone.
