Add Project and External Folders to Project

Add Project Folder to Project

The Add Project Folder to Project command adds a new folder to the current project. When you click the command, the Properties dialog (screenshot below) pops up, in which you enter the name and file type extensions for the folder (file type extensions are separated by a semi-colon). When a file having the file type extension defined for the folder is added to the project, the file will automatically be added to this folder. The newly added project folder is appended to the list of project folders in the Project sidebar.
