Choose whether to save the directory hierarchy in the Crowdin project


  • This command relies on the source files and folder structure in Crowdin and will download them to the same structure locally. If you’re using the preserve_hierarchy option as false, it may skip directories when uploading sources to Crowdin and as a result the downloaded sources may be placed in a different location than the original ones. It’s highly recommended to use "preserve_hierarchy": true if you want to use this command.
