First, please turn off HTML in your email client before
posting to the sourcenav list.

The "Add files" button in the "Edit Target" dialog will
filter out any files with an extension it doesn't know
how to hand.  To build a fortran project with Source-Navigator
you will have to add a Fortran build rule (I'm assuming
the you have a valid working Fortran compiler, etc).

Two ways to add a rule for fortran, one is using
sn_add_simple_ide_rulein .../etc/sn_prop.cfg

sn_add_simple_ide_rule Fortran \
        -suffix-list {.o.f90} \
        -action "$<" \
        -tool fortran \
        -description "Compile a Fortran file." \
        -file-type Fortran

replace "-tool fortran" with whatever fortran compiler
you are using.  The other way is to edit toolchain.tcl
and hardcode a new fortran rule (YUCK! I promise we won't
hardcode toolchains and rules sooooo badly for the next
