Can't create new file from project tree?
« on: February 02, 2016, 08:28:12 pm »
Most of the time when I create a new file, I've done it from outside of SlickEdit (create file in whatever directory, pop it open from the command line [vs <file>] which adds it to the buffer list and then I add it to the project if it isn't already picked up by wildcarding.

Today I thought I'd try it from within SlickEdit and was surprised it didn't work as expected (it's all greyed out), well, at least not from the project tree (trying it via File > New dialogue worked fine).  I intuitively expected I could have created a new file from project/directory location (see image).

It seems it's not supported for that Folder View.

Could you clarify your statement?   Is there a reason it is not supported, or is this a bug?

If the selected folder was part of a recursive wildcard entry, then it would be disabled.  That is an existing limitation in the Project tool window view.

Although I would still expect the "New File" option to work, I appreciate the explanation.   Thanks.
