What does this mean? I was trying to add a file to a project.

Go into files and select your source language Jul 9, 2015

Jeff: go into files, then click on the FILES bar. The box on top will probably have your target language. Change that to the source language. Add the file and prepare it. When this is done and want to work on the file, go back to the target language.

Looks like you are using Jul 10, 2015

some older version of Studio. Newer versions automatically switch to source language folder when you are adding files to the project.

Thank you Marco and Natalie Jul 10, 2015

for the replies. I thought it was asking me to change the menu/program language which I thought was weird.

It's Studio 2011 Jul 11, 2015

so not that old and it will have to do for another five years at least.

Hi Jeff Jul 11, 2015

I just wanted to tell that in the newest versions of Studio (2014 SP2 and 2015) you may forget about switching to source folder as this is done automatically.
