All the directories and files that have been added to your Wing project are displayed in the Project tool in the Tools menu. Each item is paired with an icon indicating its type, if a file type can be determined for it. When a revision control system such as Git or Mercurial is active, a red pencil changed icon is superimposed on the file type icons on any file that has been changed since last update or commit.

The project can be set to organize your files in one of several ways, using the Options menu in the top right of the Project tool:

  • View As Tree -- This displays the project files in tree form. The tree structure is based on the relative path from the project file to the files and directories added to the project.
  • View As Flattened Tree -- This view shows files organized according to their location on disk. Each directory is shown at the top level with path names shown as relative paths based on the location of the project file.

The Options menu also contains items that control the sorting of files within their directory:

  • Sort by Name -- Show files in alphabetical order
  • Sort by Mime Type -- Show files grouped by mime type
  • Sort by Extension -- Show files grouped by their extension

The List Files Before Directories option controls whether files or directories are shown first in the tree view.
