    Having a problem where if I have a shared folder, and I add that "folder" with its files as a group in multiple projects, If I decide I want to remove it from one of the projects, it keeps prompting to Move to Recycle Bin?

    If I click no/cancel it wont remove. of course if I hit yes, its detrimental to my sanity and other projects.

    So currently I have to Notepad++ the B4A file and physically remove the entries in the file.

    any thoughts on a fix?

    Are you talking about the Files tab or the Modules tab?

    Files are copied to the Files folder. They are never linked.

    I am talking about this:

    https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-modules-files-groups-and-folders.86587/

    In my top level directory I created a folder called Shared.

    So then I created a group in my project called Shared, and added those files in the Shared folder into my group. I also have the paths configured for that directory to be for additional code modules as well.

    My goal is to have classes/layouts/files that are shared between 80 or so different apps/projects, but some of the stuff is static.

    So I only have to update the 1 file, not 80 of them.

    There is no bug here. The files are copied to the local files folder. Start a new thread in the questions forum and I'll explain a better way to share files.
