Back again.

 

I have some source files in a directory where I want them.

The directory is a sibling of other source directories in the project.

Whenever I try to add one of its files to the project,

AS7 makes a copy in the parent directory.

 

How do I add it in place?

 

This situation seems familiar,

but I just cannot find the right search terms.

This topic has a solution.

I struggled with that a while back.

 

Do "Add Existing", selet the item in the file navigator with a SINGLE click.

 

In the file dialog, note that there is an "Add" button. If you click the little triangle on the right end of that button, you get a popup menu.

 

Select "Add as link".

 

Done

That just puts a link where it used to put a copy.

The file is already in the project's directory hierarchy.

It just isn't officially part of the project.

Now I have a file and a link to it in the same directory hierarchy.

I do not want a link.

I want AS7 to put the file on its list of things to do along with the file's many cousins.

 

I do not understand why it wants to make a copy.

Nor do I understand how it selects the location.

I found an answer:

AS7's show-all-files toggle is to the left of the wrench.
