Configuring the program list

By default Prop automatically creates a list of programs based on what it finds in the program directory. You can manually specify which programs are displayed in the program list by using the Configure Programs Window which is accessed using Options >  Configure Programs. The Program window consists of two lists, one is the program list currently Selected; unselected programs are placed in the Programs Found list. If you are using the default settings then the Programs found list will be empty as Prop will have already added all available programs to the program list.

To add or remove programs from a particular list simply select the desired program and then click the relevant button (add/remove) alternatively you can double click the desired program. The add/remove all buttons can be used to transfer quickly the contents of one list to another.

When you are happy with your selection please click on the OK button to save your results; hitting cancel will invalidate any changes you have made. By making changes to the program list you will also switch prop from automatic selection mode (if activated). To allow prop to select programs automatically again use the preferences menu.

This feature allows a project control file to be constructed with a limited subset of programs, hiding others, for example, for teaching purposes.
