Modify the Recently Opened Projects List

The AutoCAD Electrical Project Manager displays a list of recently opened Projects so you can easily select another Project to open without having to browse for it.

The Project list is dynamic with the last Project you worked on appearing at the top of the list. The list of recent Projects is saved in a text file called lastproj.fil in the user subdirectory.
  • Windows XP = \Documents and Settings\{username}\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD Electrical {version}\{release}\enu\Support\User\
  • Windows Vista & Windows 7 = \Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD Electrical {version}\{release}\enu\Support\User\
Each line in this file gives the information for one Project. The last piece of data in the line identifies what the Project state is when AutoCAD Electrical is started: 2 = Active, 1 = listed as Open, 0 = Not Listed in window, but available from the Recent Projects dialogue box. If you adjust this file, either manually with a text editor or programmatically (see the AutoCAD Electrical API Help), you can control which Project is active when AutoCAD Electrical starts up, and which other Projects are shown in the Project Manager window.
