Set Folders and File Extensions

The dialog Project — Manage — Project Items — Folders/Extensions allows you to set toolchain folders and associate file extensions to file types.

File types deliver the necessary information to compilation tools and configuration dialogs. Fine-tune the look & feel, and behavior of specific files with the dialogs listed in section Configuring the Editor.

Separate file extensions with a semicolon (;). Use an asterisk (*) as a placeholder. For example:

  • *.c - identifies all file names that have the extension .c.
  • *.a* - identifies all file names whose extension starts with an .a.

Manage Project Items

The file type can be set individually for each item in the field File Type of the dialog Properties.

All window fields are described in Folders/Extensions.


  • These settings are valid for the entire project.
