At times, you will be working on documents that are linked to one another in some way. For example, you might be working on several documents concurrently, each representing individual chapters of a book. You will often want to open all these related documents together. This is done by including them in an "Atlantis Document Project".
When documents are saved as an Atlantis Document Project, the whole set can be loaded at one go, as a single object.
The Atlantis document projects are plain text files with the .adpr file extension (ADPR stands for "Atlantis Document PRoject). They only include the full path names of the related documents. For example, an Atlantis ".adpr" file might look like this:
C:\Documents and Settings\John\My Documents\Chapter 1.rtf
C:\Documents and Settings\John\My Documents\Chapter 2.rtf
*C:\Documents and Settings\John\My Documents\Chapter 3.rtf
In this example, the document project includes 4 RTF documents. The asterisk placed in front of the third filename indicates that it will automatically be the active document when you open the project in Atlantis.
When you create or open a document project, Atlantis automatically switches into the "project mode", and the name of the project is displayed in the title bar:
When Atlantis is in the project mode,
Atlantis has a dedicated File | Document Project menu:
