How do I properly open a recent project?
« on: June 16, 2015, 04:26:43 am »
I created a new project called "My First Program". I also added a file to it and named it "Hi". I saved it and it showed under Main.cpp. Then I closed CB.

Next day I started CB then choose "Open Recent Project". "My First Program" opened, but only Main.cpp was under the source files.

When I go File->Open I see the following:

First Program file with CB logo in the image of the icon

First Program.depend with blank icon

First Program.layout with blank icon

Main (no extension) with C++ in the icon

Hi (no extension) with C++ in the icon

Can someone please, explain what are these files and why I am not seeing "Hi.cpp" in the source file folder of my project?

Thanks in advance.

Open the file in the editor by clicking or maybe double clicking on file in the project tree.

The "Manager" is shown by doing Shift F2 or View Manager

It has several tabs one of which is Projects.
Expand the WorkSpace/Projects.
Remember to expand all of the sub items.
Esp. do the one called other.
