Hi,

I know it is possible to open more than one file by selecting the files, but if I have those different files in different folders and sub-folders, how can I get the whole text in one single editor file?

Thanks a lot!

In order to do that, you need to create your project and keep adding files using the "Add Files" command/button. Then, as you know, in "Files" view, you select the files you want to work on.

If you add your files, by adding entire folders using the "Add Folders" command/button, you cannot open files across folders, since Studio keeps you within one folder at a time. Please read below.

From SDL Trados Studio 2014 Help:
You can add files individually or you can add a folder structure. All of the files in the folder structure are added to the project. The New Project wizard creates a folder for every target language you have selected, and places the prepared *.sdlxliff files and any reference files in the appropriate language folder. If you selected files in a folder structure, this structure will be replicated in the target language folders.

Best of luck!

Have you tried to check the option "Include subfolders" Jul 14, 2016

This should allow you to select files in more than one folder.
