Random projects opening

Anyone else have random projects open when you open a library?

I have 24 projects in the library for the job I'm working on now, and I'm curious about why it never seems to open the last project I was working on, but frequently a project I haven't had open for weeks.

There have been a few times where it opened up a previous version of my current project, and I've started making my new changes to the wrong version, so I double check... when I remember.

Maybe someone has figured this one out.

This is why I generally try to keep the number of projects limited per Library or be meticulous in how projects get labeled- to avoid this confusion.

yep, this seems to be new to 10.3.
FCPX always used to remember exactly the state you left it, but now it opens libraries with its own choice of project.
i'm sure there must be some logic rather than random, but i certainly haven't figured it out yet.
noah's advice is sound. another quirk you need to remember to work around.

same here!
I like to dublicate projects to fix a state of work.

But then suddendly I realise that fcpx jumped into another project. Since it looks very similar, I sometimes do my changes on a stage some days ago, instead in the new duplicated version.

You have to pay a hell of attention to look exactly on which project you are currently on.
It looks for me it happens when you scan clips in the media-window.

It's probably some other arrogance of the software managers of fcpx trying to be extra clever and making things complicated. Don't post this issue on a fcpx forum, they will tell you, that you just don't understand the system fcpx works with.

Hoping for some Linux solution in the future!
