3.15. Open File dialog

Use the Open File dialog shown in Figure 3.31 to open a project file, LISA source file, or text document.

To display the dialog, either:


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

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 always displayed as forward slashes (/ ). This does not affect operation.

Open File dialog

The dialog has the following controls:

Look in

Specify the directory that contains the file.

File name

Enter the name of the file to open in this box.

File type

Select the type of file to filter for.


Click Open to open the file. Click Cancel to close the dialog without opening a file.

Open project file as text in source editor

This box is enabled if the selected file is not of type .lisa or.sgproj. Check the box to open the file as a plain text file in the Source window.


If an .sgproj file is selected and this box is not checked, the project will be loaded. All changes to.sgproj files are normally done through the Project menu.

You can use this option for a .sgproj to, for example, manually edit the list of repositories that are used by the project. Changes that are manually made to.sgproj files do not take effect until the file has been closed and reopened.


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.
