Although you open, close, and save the workspace, you add files to and remove files from individual projects. The Add/Remove Files function is the vehicle for adding files to and removing files from a project.
The Add/Remove Files dialog has several tabs, one for each category of file type (by default: Source, Screen, Report, Copylib, Object, List, Resource, and FD).
This topic gives an overview of the steps involved in adding any file to a project. Specific information about adding source files to a project is provided in Adding an Existing Source File.
You can add a file to a project as follows:
You can also select the desired project in the Workspace window and click the Add/Remove Files icon on the Project toolbar, or select the Add/Remove Files option on the Project menu.
Navigate to the folder containing the file to be added. A list of files that match the suffixes in the Files of type field is displayed in the Files list (top left).
If the wrong file types are listed, use the Files of type drop-down box to select a different set of file extensions. The available file extensions reflect the file types associated with the project in the properties for each File view folder.
To select multiple consecutive files, hold down the Shift key and click the files. To select multiple non-consecutive files, hold down the Ctrl key as you click.
