Using the Import wizard
You can use the Import wizard to import complete projects, source files and, project sub-folders in addition to breakpoint and preference settings.
Select Import... from the File menu to display the Import wizard.
Importing complete projects
To import a complete project either from an archive zip file or an external folder from your file system, you must use the Existing Projects into Workspace wizard. This ensures that the relevant workbench project files are also imported into your workspace.
Importing source files and project sub-folders
Individual source files and project sub-folders can be imported using either the Archive File or File System wizard. Both options produce a dialog box similar to the following example. Using the options provided you can select the required resources and specify the relevant options, filename, and destination path.

With the exception of the Existing Projects into Workspace wizard, files and folders are copied into your workspace when you use the Import wizard. To create a link to an external file or project sub-folder you must use the New File or New Folder wizard.
