The Aurora file manager window allows the user to select files for several operations including editing, deletion, moving, copying, renaming, printing, and execution. The file list may be sorted several ways (e.g. by name, by extension, by size, or by date) and special file types (hidden, system) may be set to list or not. Directories may be listed first if desired. In version 3 of Aurora, a directory tree display can be popped up and used to traverse a directory hierarchy.
The file manager may be set to pop up when starting the editor, when exiting the editor, and also may be called up during an editing session at any time.
