Option to copy to project folder for 3rd party libraries when adding existing files?


#1

Hi

When using the introducer if I want to add a third party library for example LuaBridge

I go to my project name ctrl click and go to Add Existing Files

This creates a reference to the files.

How can you copy them to the project folder like you can the included Juce Modules?

I.e. for a Juce Module I just have to tick Create Local Copy.

I can't seem to find an option to do this for adding existing files.

The only way to do that is to put your code into a module.. Otherwise there's no way for it to know which files should be copied.

But really, in most cases I'd have assumed that just copying the files yourself into your project folder and adding them to your source-control would be enough.

Thanks Jules

I thought if I was going to use the introducer I should use it to manage all files. 

Thanks for thecorrection
