Need to move "manage project" to the toolbar

Every time i start a project - I have to go - LAYERS , Then Manage project - then pick my project. It be nice if there was a project button or even on the side panel...

    The implementation of this idea, that is, reducing the number of clicks to reach a desired selection, should be extended to make other TNP operations more intuitive and quicker for new users to learn, and more efficient for everyone. See a related idea, "Preference changes may be simplified…"

    To save one step, if you frequently start by creating (or opening) a project would be to turn off the "Show at Startup" option of the Open Map window. This will speed up the loading process slightly, then you can go directly to Layers, Manage Projects to open the desired project (or create a new one.)

    Opening a project or starting a new project is the first step I do when I open the program up. Just seems funny to have to got thru bunch of drop downs to get to the project screen. How about when it first opens up the program where it shows you the state map. It asks you to create a new project or go into a existing project...

    I combined all related ideas for a new way to manage projects into this one. Unfortunately, it's not as easy to make these sorts of changes. For example, to add a "Open Project" button to the toolbar we would need to remove an existing button (otherwise the toolbar will not fit on a minimum display.) What it really boils down to is that we need to rework the TNP interface - which is something we want to do as time and resources permit.

    That said, please feel free to "vote" for this feature - and share your ideas on how you would like it to work.
