I use ctrlP to switch projects frequently. Until recently, I stored all of my .sublime-project and .sublime-workspace files in my home directory. In a recent cleanup I decided to move them all into a sub-folder of my home directory.

Now, the switch-project dialog shows the cached references to the old location of the project files alongside their new locations. It's a real pain in the rear because I have to compare the paths to make sure I select the correct entry.

Is there any way, short of nuking my install and starting fresh, to clear this cache?


Edit the "recent_workspaces" section of session.sublime_session in your settings folder. More details here:

    It's also worth noting that you can't make your edits using Sublime. (Guessing, but it seems like it re-saves from memory on quit, so changes are lost.) – Adam Tuttle Apr 11 '13 at 12:42
  • The Project Management package helps to avoid this kind of issue by moving your project files to the Packages/Users/Projects folder and providing better command palette options for projects. – dang Nov 27 '14 at 18:00
