Transit NXT v 4.0 SP10 build 1754.2

Hello,

Hello,

Does anyone know if you can specifiy which projects a user sees in the 'Project browser' window? Or at least whether you can restrict access to projects via a Transit setting? Note that I don't mean remove access permissions in Windows – you can deny access to a project folder in Windows, but then Transit will complain that the working folder for project X is missing and offer to recreate it.

Thanks.

User scope works (with limitations) for new projects Oct 8, 2018

This means such a project is also hidden from a checker, for example, and you can't 'assign' a project to another user, only to yourself.

I've played around a bit with this, but I don't think there is a functionality that will do what we want. To be fair though,
