Hi Guys

Very sorry if I missed something in the manuals but I have a question regarding the contents of the Files Tab on the IDE. It appears you cannot have links to externally stored files (i.e. from another project), they must be present in the project’s Files folder.

You can however link external modules/classes/etc under the Modules tab.

The reason why I need to link is I have generated some test code (in a separate test project) to test classes, some of which load associated layout files.

Hopefully, I have just missed an IDE option.
