Project Manager

The functions above are also available from the project manager, plus a few extra features not available in the menu.


There are some context menu items you can use that are not listed in the project menu. Use a mouse right click in the project view to open the context menu.

You can use drag n drop to move file and folders in the project manager. You can also drag files from the explorer tab or from "Windows Explorer". Please note that it is possible to drag several selected files and folders in one action.

You can open all selected files with a double mouse click or pressing <enter>.

If you press the <ALT> key and use the UP/DOWN/RIGHT arrow keys, the focused files are activated or opened.
