Recent Menu

The Recent menu allows editing or loading recently-used projects, files, and source code definitions by simply selecting them from a history list rather than re-browsing for them from scratch. This is especially useful for retrieving things that were being used in the previous invocation of lisp, since they are no longer present upon restarting Lisp.

The number of items in each submenu is the value of the recent-limit configuration property.

The submenu for each history list will be unavailable (grayed out) if there is nothing in the history for that type of item. This will be the case in a freshly installed Lisp, or in a fresh invocation of Lisp if the prefs.cl file was deleted (since the history lists are kept there along with the configuration options).

If a submenu contains the same file name more than once, this indicates distinct files in different directories. To find out which file is which, hold the mouse briefly over the submenu until the tooltip appears with the full pathname for the menu-item currently under the mouse. (The tooltip delay is controlled by the menu-tooltip-delay configuration property, which defaults to 1500 milliseconds.)

The items on the menu are:
