Exporting files

Files can be exported from the Workbench either by:

Drag and drop or copy and paste

The operating system's file system explorer can be used to export a copy of a folder or file from the Workbench to the file system.

  1. Open the operating system's file system explorer.

  2. Drag a .txt file from one of the navigation view to the file system explorer.

  3. Depending on where you are dragging to, you may need to hold down the Ctrl or Shift key while dragging to ensure the file is copied. Look for a small plus sign on the drag cursor to know whether the file is being copied or moved.

  4. The export can also be achieved by selecting the file in the Project Explorer and choosing Edit > Copy, then

    pasting it in the file system explorer.
