In this topic, we explain about the Getting Started Section in detail with screenshots.
Getting Started section is used to open the project folder where the files are stored. Click on getting started icon to get the "Open Folder..." button as shown below.
Click on the Open Folder... button to open the "Choose a Folder". Select the project folder and click on "Select Folder" button to open the Project.
The project got opened as shown below.
The wonderful feature is, it will show all the projects worked or opened when we click on "Getting Started" button.
Managing Files -
Right click on anywhere in the highlighted section under the "Getting Started" button, displays the managing files options.
The managing file options are -
- New File
- New Folder
- Show in Explorer
- Find in...
- Replace in...
- Refresh File Tree
Let us see how the options work when we click on them below.
New File - Creates a new file in the "Getting Started" folder. Name the file with extension (.htm, .css, etc,.) and click on "Enter".
New Folder - Creates a new folder in the "Getting Started" folder. Name the folder and click on "Enter".
Rename - Renames the selected file in "Getting Started" folder (index.html in this case). Rename the file and click on "Enter".
Delete - Deletes the selected file in the "Getting Started" folder. Click on "Delete" button on the confirmation dialog to delete the file.
Show in Explorer - Opens the selected file in the file explorer.
Find in... - Opens the search bar to find a string or word or pattren in the current file.
Replace in... - Opens the replace bar to replace a string or word or pattren with another in the current file.
Refresh File Tree - Refreshes the current file tree in the folder. This option is not useful now a days. Because, Brackets editor automatically refreshes the file tree when additions or removals happen.
There is another option to see the image dimensions in Brackets editor. Click on the image and the image preview gets opened in the editor with its dimensions, type as show below.
