Viewing Empty Content Folders

Viewing Empty Content Folders

You can scan for empty content folders in a project with the Unused Items window pane. Empty content folders are those that have been created, but do not contain files of any type. You can quickly delete any empty content folders in the Unused Items window pane.

How to View Empty Content Folders

  1. Select Analysis > More Reports > Unused Items.

    The Unused Items window pane opens, which lets you view various unused elements in the project (such as bookmarks, condition tags, content files, CSH IDs, images, variables, styles, file tags, and topics not linked).

  2. Click the drop-down field at the top of the window pane and select Empty Content Folders. The empty content folders in the project are listed.
  3. To see more of the information in the window pane, drag the divider bar to make the pane wider:

    • Folder Displays the name of the empty content folder.
  4. If a certain number of items have been found, page navigation buttons in the local toolbar may be enabled. You can use these buttons to go to additional pages to display more items.
  5. If you want to remove any empty content folders from Flare, as well as from the project being analyzed, select the empty content folder in the list and click in the local toolbar.

Note You can also include this information in reports that you create. See Reports.
