Element Files values
« on: February 25, 2020, 11:48:09 am »

In EA 15.1 in what window/pane are the files values displayed?
I seem obly to be able to access them via a separate properties window, yet in 14 they were exposed under the element window IIRC


It is convenient to access them from a docked toolbar (e.e. alongside Element and Tags)

The list of files for an element is in the Element Browser.

I see, thanks, and thats quite useful,
but the in-pane ability to add files seems to have gone, clicking on "new file" from the context menu brings up the separate, and modal, properties window.

Yes, the element browser doesn't have any inline editing of anything it contains.

You have the choice of inline editing the properties of a file link in the Properties docked window or bringing up a properties dialog to edit it.
