The following tutorial explains how to use the "View Tree" feature in Embird 2006 or later.
1 - Run Embird, it will start in "Manager" mode.
2 - In the "Folder:" box at the right side of the screen choose the folder which contents will be displayed in the tree (Picture No.1).Embird will scan this folder and all its subfolders for files, taking also the "Filter:" setting into consideration. In this example, Embird will display in the tree all .DST files stored in "C:\Program Files\EMBIRD32" folder and its subfolders.
3 - Click "Right Panel -> View Tree" menu to switch ON the displaying of the tree on the middle panel (Picture No. 1).

4 - Embird will scan the folder and after a while the tree appears on the screen (Picture No. 2). The advantage of displaying files in the tree is that you can see the contents of several folders at once - in this example there is contents of the "C:\Program Files\EMBIRD32\FILES" folder and also the contents of "C:\Program Files\EMBIRD32\NEW" folder displayed at the same time. In case you are a registered user of Iconizer plug-in, and the "Right Panel -> Preview Files" option is ON, the design icons will appear also in the tree, as shown in Picture No. 2 below. The "Print" and "Export" buttons located below the tree allows you to print the tree, or export it to .BMP or .JPG file.
