Opening and Closing a Folder

Opening and Closing a Folder

Double-click a folder to open a folder and tool at the same time. When you double-click the folder, the Designer opens the folder in the Navigator and displays the last tool that was active within the folder.
You can also select a folder and then choose a tool to open a workspace. If you select the Reload Tables/Mappings When Opening a Folder option, the Designer also displays the last objects open when using that tool.
For example, if you close a folder with the Source Analyzer active, the next time you open the folder using the Open Folder button, the Designer displays the Source Analyzer.
To close a folder:
  1. Select the folder in the Navigator and click the Disconnect button. To close all open folders and tools, click Repository > Close All Tools.
