Projects that no longer exist shouldn't appear in the recent files list. “In my opinion"
Adobe’s Premier Pro removes nonexistent projects from the list automatically. If the project doesn’t exist, it’s pointless to have it listed if it cannot be opened. It won't be removed from the list until after you restart PP.
Adobe’s Photoshop on the other hand. Still lists deleted files under the “Open Recent” tab. If you try to open one of those, you get the pop up
Forcing you to click again.
When I delete a project in Camtasia 2018, the project still appears in the recent files list. Just like Photoshop. So I have a pop up to contend with.
Then, as I was playing around with it this morning. I deleted a new project as a test.One that was a throwaway project.Updated from Camtasia 9 and deleted. Now my recent projects list is Blank.
I restarted Camtasia 5 times, the situation didn't correct itself. The recent project screen is still blank.So there's an issue.
