"Bufffers-List" across separate SE invocations
« on: January 22, 2018, 09:35:56 pm »
I have used SE to open 10 files in one directory, then closed that single instance of SE.
If from a different directory, I open a single file from this different directory, the "Buffers-List" shows all 10 files from the first invocation along with the new file.  This is most confusing.
These operations appear to be additive, so I now in fact have many dozens of files stuck in my "Buffers-List".

 Can somebody PLEASE tell me how to make SE keep buffer lists for each invocation separate.  i.e., the second invocation above should display a "Buffers-List" containing only the single file that was just opened.  Most editors keep their buffers-list separated based upon invocation-directory (allowing separate buffers/history for many projects/directories).  It seems SE default behavior is to use a single global list?

In tools -> options, type "restore" (no quotes) in the search box.  Click on "auto restore".  Uncheck "auto restore files".  Click the help button for more information.
