Bookmarking Directories and Files
Goal: learn to use VCDAT's bookmarking capabilities so you can easily work with frequently used files and directories.
To set a bookmark for your favorite working directories, select the folder bookmark icon to the right of the "Directory" input text window. (See figure 1.) A popup window will appear for setting your directory bookmarks. (See figure 4.) In the popup window, select the "Add Directory" button to add "<CDAT_SRC_DIRECTORY>/Packages/dat" to the working directories list.
To set a bookmark for your favorite working files and/or URLs, select the file bookmark icon to the right of the "File" input text window. (See figure 1.) A popup window will appear for setting your file and URL bookmarks. (See figure 5.)
To retrieve bookmarks, select the appropriate directory or file retrieval icon: for directories and for files and URLs. Bookmark additonal directories and files, then select the appropriate icons to view your saved directories and files.
Remember: when you ‘bookmark‘ a directory, file, or URL, you are telling VCDAT to remember for easy recall, without having to retype text again.
