File Tree View command


This menu item enables or disables the File Tree View.

 

The File Tree View shows a list of files or directories for the selected drive in a tree type format.  The Drive/File List shows the drives available and additionally allows a selection for displaying all the open files or files in the current project.

 

Double clicking on any of the files in the Tree View will open or activate the file.  Multiple files may be selected and opened at once.  (To select multiple files, use the left mouse button and the shift key to select between two files, or the control key and the left mouse button to select multiple non contiguous files).

 

The Filter entry box allows the user to specify a file filter that will be applied to the files shown when viewing one of the drives.  It does not apply when showing project or open files.

 

Several functions are available by right clicking on the appropriate file.  These are dependant on the list being shown.
