3.4. Add Files (Project menu)


Japanese or Korean characters must not be used in project filename paths, as they can lead to failure to find the specified libraries.

Select Add File from the Project menu to add a new file to the project. See Figure 3.4.


Repository and LISA files are always processed in the order they occur in the project file (*.sgproj) and sub-repository files (*.sgrepo). You can change the order of files and repositories in the File List view in the Component window by clicking and using the context menu to move the item up or down, or clicking and dragging the item to its new position. See File processing order.

On Windows, the direction of the slash characters separating directories appears to be reversed. You can enter slash characters in either direction but they are displayed as forward slash (/ ) in all cases. This does not affect operation.

Figure 3.4. Add Files dialog

Add Files dialog

The behavior of this dialog is identical to the Add Existing Files dialog described in Add Existing Files and Add New File dialogs (Component window).

If a new file is currently being edited in the Source tab, select Add Current File from the Projects menu to immediately add the file to the project. No dialog is displayed.


You can use the Recently selected files dropdown list on the dialog to display files that have been added to other projects. To remove a file from the list, move the mouse cursor over the file name and press the Delete key or right click and select Remove from list from the context menu.
