No extension files in Project viewer
- Hi, everyone.
I don't know if this is of any interest to the public, but since it
bothered me for a while I decided to share my experience on the subject.
My company uses a build tool called Jam, that builds a folder contents
based on the instructions (file lists), stored in a file named
'Jamfile'. What I tried to do was to add a no-extension file type to
the File Options\Types list in the Gel Options. Unfortunately the Add
dialog had it's OK button disabled until I entered something in the
Extension field, making the adding of a file with no extension
impossible. What I did was to enter 'XXX' (or any other string ypu
like) and then I was able to add it to the known extensions list.
After that I closed Gel and found my space in the Options.xml file in
and removed it (don't forget to back up the original Options.xml
before doing this!), leaving the comma:
After that the only thing left was to tell my Project and Smart
folders that I'm interested in showing this file type in the Project
I hope you'll find this post useful,
Best regards, Hristo Doynov.
