Inserting Files and Folders

XML schemas, MFD, XML, XSLT, and WSDL files are added to a design either using the context menu in the Explorer or by dragging them from the Explorer window into a Design window. Each file is displayed as a file box, existing relationships between files are represented with colored lines.

 

When inserting files into a design window, you have several options to do so:

 

Selecting one or several files in the Explorer, then right-clicking and choosing Insert into current design from the context menu.
Dragging the file(s) from the Explorer window using the left mouse button will insert only the selected file(s).
When dragging the file(s) from the Explorer window using the right mouse button, a context menu appears upon releasing the mouse button:

design_insert-file-popup

In addition to inserting only the selected file(s), you can now also choose to insert all files that are directly or indirectly referenced by the selected file(s). Each of the options opens a sub-menu where you can further restrict your choice to a single file type (XSD, MFD, XML, XSLT, or WSDL) or select all files.

 

Selecting a folder in the Explorer window and dragging it into a design window will insert all relevant files that are contained in the selected folder.
Expanding a file box in the Design window, right-clicking an included or imported file and selecting Insert into current design will add a file box for this file to the design.

 

 

To insert files or folders into a design:

In the Explorer window, do one of the following:

 

To insert one or several individual files, select the desired files and drag them into a Design window using the left mouse button.
To insert all files contained in a folder, drag the folder into a Design window.

 

The files or the files contained in the dragged folders, respectively, appear in the Design window. Alternatively, you can also select one or several files or folders and choose Insert into current design from the context menu or press Insert.

 

 

To insert the file(s) as well as all directly or indirectly referenced files:

Select one or more files, drag them into a Design window using the right mouse button and select the desired option from the context menu that appears. The selected file(s) as well as the respective referenced files appear in the Design window.

 

 

To select a file box for a file that shows up as related file in a different file's box:

Right-click that file in the relevant section of the file box and choose Insert into current design from the context menu or press Insert.
