Detach directory?

Is there a way to change which directories you have 'attached' to 0xDBE? A kind of detach directory maybe?

Hi.

Delete action suggests either Detach or Delete. Maybe not too obvious.

I'm not so sure about that Alexander, here's what I get:

Delete directory "D:"?
All files and subdirectories in "D:" will be deleted.
You might not be able to fully undo this operation!

I'm thinking that 'delete' does something very different from 'detach'.

Hm. I select a directory, press Delete. The dialog with three choices appears: Detach, Delete, Cancel. Detach does detach.

(However, please try this with some dummy, safe-to-lose directory.)

On a new directory that I have attached I get that dialog with the three options - I think what happened here is that I tried to set the directory as excluded in an attempt to remove it, and on that excluded directory I now only get the delete dialog that I mentioned above. So, is there anyway to undo that exclude?

Edit: Found it, in the default.iml file in the .0xDBE10/config/projects/default/.idea directory it was set up with an exclude option. I removed that from the file and I was then able to detach it. Thanks Alexander.

Thank you, created an issue: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/DBE-541
The GUI for de-excluding a directory seems to be removed from 0xDBE.

To work this around, please exit the IDE and go to (user.home)/.0xDBE10/config/projects/(your.project)/.idea/default.iml. Find and remove "excluded" element in that file, then restart.

Regards,
Alexander.
