Hi Dylan,

Go to the Project menu then Add Folder to Project... and navigate to the folder you want to add and click OK.

its not poping out, like when i add the folder it just says "html.index-websitewaters-island01-stage03" at the top of the window in the thin grey area.

Click Open New Folder And Your Directory Will Open.

if you are using windows, go to the drop-down menu labelled View, then open the sub-menu Side Bar, and click Show Open Files. This will open the sidebar. Then you can click Project, and Add Folder to Project. If you are using a mac, it should be similar, but I can't say for sure.

thank you everyone especially crystal morris

Or, you can simply drag n' drop your project folder into the code window and it will open up the project panel with all the necessary files.

On that project I tried to do the exact same thing and randomly Sublime deleted all of my code when I was following along with that site, and we dont get the full version either. You have to pay $70 for it. Really frustrating but now I am just watching the videos alone.

I (sadly) used to use the code editor in Dreamweaver... because I have it.

After intro to sublime text 2, I've been using that. WAYY better. I haven't paid yet, but I only have to push "cancel" and I can keep working.

Anybody use/try Coda? I'ver heard good things.
