Tired of making the same folders each time you start a new project?
You can save a template that will automatically do that for you. Here's how:
- Create a new project file with your preferred folder structure
Don't want to make your own template? You can have mine
- Save this blank project somewhere.
- Open Preferences → New Project
- Check "New Project Loads Template" and load your saved template file!
Now every time you create a new project, it will load up this template!
You could even use this to load a specific set of brand assets into a new project if you're working on something that requires many different project files.
But this begs the question...
Why should you keep your project organized?
It's crucial in working with a team or passing off projects to others.
Even if you work alone, have you ever opened up an old project from a couple years ago? Yikes.
Keep your projects organized: make future you happy.
