I'm doing some testing of the built in GIT with PB 2021.

I ran the Add to Source Control on the workspace and it created the ws_objects folder with sub folders for each library.

The target files (*.pbt) are not in ws_objects even though they show with green dots in the IDE.

Is this normal? How can it track history of those files if they aren't in ws_objects?

I have the .pbw, .pbt, and .pbl files all in the same folder. This workspace just has a few small targets with 1-2 libraries each so I thought it would be a good choice for testing.

Hi Roland,

files like pbw, pbt are stored in the "normal" directories that are also added to the git source control and can be "tracked".

The subfolders in ws_objects include only source code files .sr* (stuff that exists inside PBLs).

You can take a look at the PFC repository:


As you can see, also other files like .pbr and .ico are added to the repository.
