File Selection panel

The File Selection panel provides a list of HFS directory entries, from which you can select the files to be included in your current process. This panel is displayed when you have specified a HFS directory on an Entry panel.
Note: The title of the File Selection panel shown in Figure 1 includes the word, "View", indicating that it was invoked from the View Entry panel. The title varies according to which Entry panel invokes the File Selection panel.
