My file manager is displayed with the plus sign in front of the project name but I cannot expand the view. There are more than 400 files in my actual project but to open a file I have to use the project manager now. This is time consuming as a lot of files only contain just some words.
I tried opening another project but I cannot expand the file list. The only entry is the project name. Clicking in the "+" sign doesn't function.
Any idea? By the way, my Windows Explorer works fine, so no problem from that side.
I suppose it is a problem with the general settings but I have no idea so far.

Provisional solution Apr 2, 2007

Hi Axel,

I don't know why this is happening but I have a provisional solution for you that might work: If you double click on the name of the project folder in the File Navigator, you will see all your 400 files in a two column view (as though all of them were part of the same file). In this way you will be able to edit them all at once.

Hope this helps!

Repair project and restart DVX? Apr 5, 2007

That has happened to me, on a few occasions. I've usually found that repairing the project and restarting DVX does the trick.
