Use the following steps if you want to quickly build and publish multiple targets using an option in the Builds window pane. The targets do not need to be within the project that you currently have open. This is an alternative to using batch targets (see Building Output Using a Batch Target).
- (Optional) If you plan to use the publishing destination feature to automatically copy your generated output files to a specific location, make sure you have already created the destination file and associated it with your target.
See Creating Publishing Destinations and Associating Publishing Destinations with Targets.
- Open the Builds window pane (View > Builds).
- In the local toolbar of the Builds window pane, click Build Targets. The Select Targets to Build dialog opens.
On the left side of the dialog, navigate to the Flare project whose targets you want to build. When you find the project, select the FLPRJ file. Any targets in the selected project are automatically listed on the right side of the dialog.
- Click the Build and/or Publish check boxes for each target you want to compile or publish.
- Click OK. In the Builds window pane, rows are added for each target you select and they begin to compile and/or publish.
Note: You can also select the target row in the Builds window pane and click Rebuild Target to generate the output again.
Note: As an alternative to using Flare's publishing destination feature, you can click on a generated row in the Builds window pane and select Open Output Folder. Then navigate to the target folder and copy the output files wherever you need them.
Note: If you have added linked projects to your target to create multilingual output, Flare will build each project in the order you specified in the Target Editor. See How to Select Languages for a Specific Target.
Warning: If your computer's anti-virus (AV) software scans the Output folder during the build process and you experience one or more "Build Failed" errors, the AV software may be preventing the build process from accessing the output files. To avoid this, you can temporarily turn off or disable your AV scan. You may also be able to exclude the Output folder, add Flare to an exceptions list, or postpone/reschedule scans to a different time. See your AV vendor for information.
