You can remove files from a project with the Add/Remove Files dialog box. Note that although the files are removed from the project, they are not deleted from the disk.
Because you can have multiple projects in the same workspace, there is the potential for inadvertently removing files from
the wrong project. Always select the target project in the Workspace window before initiating the Add/Remove Files function.
The Add/Remove Files dialog box has several tabs, one for each category of file type (by default: Source, Screen, Report, Copylib, Object, List, Resource, and FD).
You can remove files from a project as follows:
- 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. The Add/Remove Files dialog box is displayed.
- Click the tab that corresponds to the type of file to be removed.
- In the Files in project list, select the files to be removed and click the Remove button.
You can quickly remove all of the files of a selected type by clicking the Remove All button.
- When you are done, click OK to accept the changes and close the dialog box. If you click Cancel, your changes are not recorded.
Note: You can quickly remove all of the files of a selected type by clickingthe Remove All button.
To empty a folder, right-click the folder that you want to remove all files from in the File tab of the Workspace window. Select Empty from the pop-up menu.
