I am trying to add a layout to an Android project:
Right clicked on
New | Directory. The directory was created however not shown under
app/res. Maybe because empty dirs are hidden by default? Went to Windows explorer and added a file to the newly created directory (hidden in Android Studio). Back in the Studio, how can I ‘refresh’ the project structure to show the newly created directory and the file under it?
Essentially my question is, what is the alternative to Eclipse’ Refresh menu option?
If I find that Android Studio is out of synch with the file system I use
File->Synchronize. Or equivalently, Ctrl+Alt+Y or the little circle with arrows menu button.
