You can open multiple projects within a single instance of MegAlign Pro. Each project is displayed in a separate tab and is initially assigned a unique name (Untitled[#].msa).

To make a project the active project:

Click on its project tab.


To open an additional MegAlign Pro window:

Select the Window > New Window command.


To open a project chooser:

Press Ctrl+; (Win) or Cmd+; (Mac). Alternatively, press the >> icon that appears to the right of the project tabs. This icon is displayed when multiple projects are open and the MegAlign Pro window is too small to display each one in an individual tab.

The project chooser appears as a yellow popup with a line for typing in text at the top, and a list of open projects below.

Use your mouse to click on the project you want to make active. If you do not have a mouse, make a selection using the keyboard arrow keys, then press Enter. To instead search for a project using a filter, type text into the text field and press Enter. The text field supports the “?” and “*” wildcards.
