  6. To add a source container to the source locations list:
    • Click Add to open the Add Source dialog box
    • Select a container type.
    • Select a container from the list of available containers of the selected type.
  7. You can remove or modify a source container by selecting a container and clicking the Remove or Edit button.
  8. You can change the order of source containers by selecting a container and clicking the Up or Down buttons.
  9. To search for duplications in your source locations select the Search for duplicate source files on the path checkbox.
