I have been trying to add a folder as a reference material for projects under Administration->Settings->Reference material->Add folder..., but transit wouldn't let me. In the selection window transit forces me to click "open" again and again until I reach the file level. Identical to choosing a single file as reference. I am using Transit NXT Freelance.

Am I doing something wrong? Is it due to the version I am using?

Thank you.

You're probably doing it right May 22

Hi,

for whatever reason, some processes in Transit are a bit confusing. You do indeed have to click on "open" when you reach the single file level. Just make sure not to select one of the shown single files, and your complete folder will be added as reference material.

Make sure... no longer necessary May 22

Indeed, some things are strange, but:

Since some Service Packs ago, you no longer need "to make sure not to select one of the shown single files".
If you have selected a single file (by accident) and click "open", Transit will replace your selection in the "file" field by *.*. If you click "open" again, you have successfully selected the folder with all its files.
In other words: Click "open" once or twice until the folder selection windows closes.

Best regards,

O.N.

Solved, Thank you May 23

Iris, your suggestion works. It is indeed a strange way of doing things, but as long as it works...
@Oiseau, thank you, your method works well for selecting all files within a sub-folder, it does not let me though choose a folder with its sub-folders (unless the root folder contains also single files, and not only folders).

Subfolders are included May 23

AFAIK all subfolders are included automatically.
At least that is the case with my Transit SP9: When I choose and confirm a parent folder, all its sub- and subsub- and subsubsub...-folders are listed in the "reference material" tab of the project settings (i.e. can be seen by clicking on the plus sign beside the parent folder name.

Order of reference material May 24

Hi,
Oiseau noir is right AFAIK.

As I once learned in one of STAR's webinars, you can also set search preferences through the order of your reference material: The one on top has the most important priority, will be searched first, and its results will be displayed first. For this, it might also make sense to choose a subfolder with higher priority as first order reference materal, and then set another folder containing this subfolder as another reference material folder underneath. Thus, the subfolder will be searched first, before searching the more extensive reference material, and the results will be displayed first without being displayed a second time as results of the rest of the reference material (does this explanation make sense?).
