I finally found the cause of my open projects not being remembered between SAB sessions (Windows). This has been going on since I started using SAB in 2021.
The problem seemed to be the & (
&) in the App Name AFRIKAANSE Bybels (20HL & 53)
stored in the settings file as
<app-name lang="default">AFRIKAANSE Bybels (20HL & 53)</app-name>
I changed the “&” to “and” and now I don’t have to load the projects each time I open SAB.
