Each file will be opened in an individual compiler tab, if a file was already opened, its corresponding compiler tab will auto select.

Add File To Project

All opened GPC scripts can be saved into a single project file (GPJ). A project file is an easy way to recall the currently opened GPC files.

To add a gpc file to a project, and existing project must first be open in the compiler (see image below).

Select File 👉 Add File To Project and a 'Add a File To The Current Project' dialog will appear asking you to select a .gpc script file. You can also click on the 'Add File' button.

Save

To save a GPC Script file, select File 👉 Save (CTRL + S). If the script has not been previously saved, a 'Save Script As' dialog will appear asking you to choose a destination and filename. If the file exists, it will be overwritten.

Make sure you select the TAB or click inside the compiler window to focus on the script you wish to save. If the script is not selected, the Save & Compile options will not be available.

To indicate that a GPC file was changed and has not yet been saved, an asterisk(*) will be displayed in it's tab, after the filename.

Recent Files

Zen Studio keeps a list of the 10 most recently opened files in the File 👉 Recent Files menu, so you can reopen them quickly by simply clicking on the file name.

Relaunch as Admin

Zen Studio requires full Windows Administrator permissions. If a Windows install has a restricted or corrupt profile, it can prevent the software from functioning correctly. A solution to this is to open Zen Studio in Admin Mode, this is easily done by selecting File 👉 Relaunch as Admin

If you have any open TABS in the Compiler, you will get a warning message to close those TABS.

If Zen Studio has started in Admin Mode successfully, you will see [ADMIN] displayed in the Title Bar.

Exit

Close the Zen Studio Software. Duh.
