Opening a Workspace

If sent a Ctrl Suite Workspace to deploy on a project, you must open it from within Ctrl Designer to edit and sync it to your projects Ctrl Engine.

Ctrl Designer Workspaces have the .cdw file extension. Ctrl Engine Workspaces have the .cew file extension. (To open a Ctrl Engine workspace within Ctrl Designer rename the file extension to .cdw)

To open a Workspace, follow the steps below:

  • Open Ctrl Designer.
  • Select File > Open Workspace at the top left of Ctrl Designer, or use the Cmd+O / Ctrl+O keyboard shortcut.
  • Navigate to the file location of the workspace on your computer then select it.
  • Press Open.
  • Done!

Ctrl Designer opens the last workspace edited when the application is launched.
