    Hi!

    We manage lot of projects using the Unity Hub. However, it seems like there's a limited number of "slots" in the projects list and the Hub discards some entries from time to time which is quite annoying because forces us to keep opening the project from the disk.

    Strangely, if doesn't seem to drop oldest entries first but random entries.

    Not sure if this is a bug or simply a hardcoded limit.. and if it's a limited number, could it be just increased?

    Thanks

    Wow, that's ironic timing. I just came to the forum after getting frustrated by the exact same thing! Look forward to Unity's response. Hopefully there's some file with a helpful setting to disable this like "enableRemoveProjectByRandomLetter=1" ;)

    yeah I know that feeling. I find myself thinking I've done this in... one of my projects in the last year or so. I'm toying with writing a little CLI app in which I can record all my Unity projects and libraries with some integrated search and knowledge about YAML and Asset look-up facilities so I can search more easily (dare I call it UGrep? :) ). It'd be great functionality for Hub to have ... y'know if it like knew about all our projects ;-)

    I've been noticing this recently too, probably doesn't help I have 20+ projects that I'm currently working on. But it definitely doesn't drop the last used / oldest projects, but I don't see a rhyme or reason for which project it does drop.

    Happens to me too - every time I add a project, at least one is removed from the list. At first I thought I was dreaming, because I have a several of versions of a project I receive from a developer that aren't named consistently so it's been hard to keep them straight in the Hub list.

    But the other day I worked on one of my own, and then the same day I opened a new one from the developer, and mine is gone.

    Perhaps there is some limit to the number of projects? If that is the case, they should have designed it to drop the oldest ones first.
