question on stalled project filter
I was wondering with all the changes in perspectives , is there a way to get the stalled project filter , when you focus on a project , to not open the new focus window with the stalled filter in place ?

I want to add a new action and once I initiate that process , it disappears from the window , I have to go to a " recently changed projects " perspective I have to find it and add the action .

Here's what I did:[LIST][*] Switch to project mode[*] Set view bar to Project Filter=All, Grouping=Folder, Sorting=Unsorted, Status Filter=Remaining, Est. Time Filter=Any, Fiag Filter=Any[*] Select Library in the Sidebar[*] Close the sidebar (by dragging the handle at the bottom of the separator to the left)[*] Create a new perspective named "Project Focus"[*] In the Perspectives Window, make sure it is set to restore Layout and Selection[*] Take a snapshot of the window (I think this is necessary to get OF to remember the layout after turning on that option.)[/LIST]
In OF preferences, under General, I set "Project Focus" to be my default perspective for new windows.* Now double-clicking an action opens a window using this perspective, but focused on the project to which the double-clicked action belongs.

* Note: There is a bug in OF 1.7.1 that the default perspectives drop-down list in General Preferences only gets updated on a relaunch of OF. So until that's fixed you need to quit OF after setting of the perspective. Then just relaunch and set the default perspective.
