2.6.2. When a file type is associated with multiple partitions

If the file type is associated with tools in multiple partitions, the Files Matched Multiple Partitions dialog is displayed (Figure 2.17).

Follow these steps to add the file to the correct partition:

  1. Select the correct partition in the Project window.

  2. Select the file or files to add to the selected partition from the Files Matched Multiple Partitions dialog.

  3. Click Add.

  4. Repeat for each file that is displayed in the dialog.

Note

You can use the Retain partition selection settings on the APM Preferences dialog to keep the default partition set to the one last used.

Project templates supplied with APM have a Miscellanea partition, where files of types not associated with other partitions are placed. If the Miscellanea partition does not exist when you add a file not associated with a partition, the Unable to Add Files message box appears. To add the file to the project, you must associate the file type with a partition.

If you have a file type that is associated with more that one partition, you can select the partition to receive the file before you add the file to the project. Follow these steps to select the partition:

  1. Select the partition from the project view.

  2. Select Add Files to partition from the Project menu.

  3. Select the files to be added to the project using the Add Files to partition dialog.

  4. Click OK.
