Please note that you can open an existing project from the new project wizard window. With apologies for the current subtlety of this, you can press the 'Alt' key to show the menu bar, then select File -> Open normally (the shortcut
Ctrl + O should also work even while the menu bar is hidden). I'm just mentioning this so that you don't have to create new projects all the time.
That said, based on the log Tropy Tries to open
C:\Users\tgloe\OneDrive\Documents\test.tpy twice; this is odd. I'm guessing Tropy has the file in it's recent files list twice (which should not happen). Could you check if 'test.tpy' is indeed listed twice under
File -> Recent Projects?
A few seconds later, the file
C:\Users\tgloe\OneDrive\Documents\Research\LiberalismBook.tpy is opened; I'm assuming this is your actual project and that you had to open the file manually, as you say? If you close Tropy at this point, your real project should move to the top of the recent project list. When you open Tropy again and your file is not being loaded, my guess is that something goes wrong while Tropy shuts down and the state is not persisted correctly.
To figure out what's happening, could you:
- Start Tropy and open your project
Help -> Show User-Data Folder from the menu (should open Explorer)
- Close Tropy
- In Explorer, take a look at the
state.json file in Tropy's user data folder. There should be a 'recent' array in this file containing the most recently open project at this first position.
If your project is not the first in that list, could you post your
main.log again (before opening Tropy again as this would overwrite the file)? In this case I'd be interested to see if there was some error during shutdown which caused the state not to be persisted.
