Exploring Projects with the File Navigator

The Navigator is your main tool to navigate and operate on files and folders.

You can directly open and edit CGA and scene files within CityEngine by double-clicking the corresponding file in the navigator. To quickly search for a file, hit CTRL+SHIFT+R and type the name of the file you are looking for. The Navigator also provides also basic operations such as copying, renaming and deleting files and folders. For performance reasons the CityEngine keeps an internal copy of the workspace. If you modify files outside of CityEngine (e.g. by editing a file in an external program or renaming a file in the system file explorer), you have to refresh the CityEngine's internal representation. Choose File→Refresh Workspace or simply hit F5.

The Navigator will give you a preview of the current selection.
