Move dependency up

Change order of dependencies. The order is used by the IDE, but you should not rely on it. This feature exists mostly for aesthetic reasons.

Move dependency down

Same as above, but one position down.

Store file name as default for this dependency

Store the relative filename to the .lpk file in the project (.lpi) file to use as default. When the project is copied to another computer and the project is opened, the IDE searches for all needed packages. As last default it uses this filename.


Store file name as preferred for this dependency

Store the relative filename to the .lpk file in the project (.lpi) file to use as preferred. When the project is opened the IDE opens the given package file. If a package with the same name was already open, it will be replaced by the preferred one. This function exists since 0.9.29.

Clear dependency filename

Clears the default filename for this dependency set by the above 'Store dependency filename'.

Remove non existing files

Remove all files from the project that do not exist in the file system. This function exists since 0.9.29.
