Source file sharing between projects

Hi Tobias,

Thank you for your reply!

This does not resolve the fact that each file added to the project is 
duplicated into the project dir.... I don't want to work on a copy of my 
files. That's the problem. Do you mean I have to include them manually? 
Without using "Project/Add existing files"? How can I do that?
