Feature request: Open Folder at...

I'd like to see an option to view the folder contents. When I remove content, such as the wav files, I see they are not removed from the disk, so I have to manually find them. It should be easy to add an option to open explorer to the file's location, thanks. ;)

(also, it would be helpful to add an option to prevent importing wavs into my project from my repository of wav sounds I already have - I don't need to save them with my project! This also speeds up save time.)JoyfulDreamer2013-04-24 21:15:48

The files should be removed from disk, but changes aren't made to the files on disk until you next press save.

Nope, sorry, tried it. The WAV files are not removed. Besides, in cases where there may be files being backed up, slowing down the save time that others are not aware of, having an easy way to locate the project folder from the IDE really helps (I found this to be invaluable in Visual Studio).JoyfulDreamer2013-04-25 01:45:44

Just tried it and it works for me. Import a .wav file, save (file appears on disk in the project), delete it, press save (file removed from disk).

That's odd. I works for me in a new test project. I think I was opening and saving to a capx before, and not the project file. LOL. Ok, never mind then, thanks. ;) Perhaps an indication or prompt somewhere to let the user know they are editing their capx and not the project is wise. ;)
