Blog Post created by timothy_hales-esristaff Employee on May 15, 2012

Have you ever set up a workspace in CityEngine, copied your project into the workspace folder, but found that CityEngine didn't recognize the new folder? This can be avoided by following the import project workflow described below.


CityEngine Workspace1. Go to File > Import...2. Select Project > Existing Projects into Workspace.


3. Select the root directory and then select the project to be imported.

You can also choose the option to copy the project data over.  If this option is not selected, the project content will be linked into the workspace.


Once the import process completes, the projects folder will display in the navigator for the current workspace.  If it does not show, you may need to refresh the worksapce (File > Refresh Workspace).
