This question was answered for a vivado 2013.4 project here
But in Vivado 2018.2 I cannot locate the option 'Add Sources'.
Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
I need to clone a git project and the name of the source directory cannot be changed, so I need to relocate where the SDK sees my source files.

One way is...
choose RTL Project (with ‘do not specify sources at this time’ unchecked)
then Add sources
Hope that helps
If so, please mark as solution accepted. Kudos also welcomed. :-)

What is an 'RTL' SDK application and how does it differ from a default, empty application please?

Also, I only see 'Create Application Project', 'Import Project', 'Tutorials', 'Whats New' and 'Web Resources'.
How does one create an 'RTL' application?

I don't have the HLX edition, and this does not appear to be the SDK, but the Firmware tool, is that correct?
I am receiving the HDF file from someone else and just writing C++ applications on top of a soft core on the FPGA.
Thank you for trying though!

My problem is that I am not using the firmware tool, just the SDK application, so I can't answer your question. It's 10:40pm and everyone else is gone. And the important thing is that I am working solely on the application part.
I am trying another solution, and that is to create the application, which creates the src directory by default.
I will clone the git repo in the same parent directory as the Xilinx SDK src directory, delete the src directory and create a symbolic link from src to the repo directory name.
Have a good evening!

I am guessing that you are not familiar with the SDK tool. It is a completely different application than the Firmware generation tool.
I am sorry that I confused matters by listing Vivado, since I am really using SDK 2018.2, which is bundled with Vivado 2018.2.
I've attached a couple of screen shots below.

I tried using that option earlier, but I had trouble. It was probably a mistake on my part, but since my last response, I was able to create the softlink, and the SDK is happy so I am using that and moving on for now. However, the firmware team will need to do the same thing, so we will re-visit the GIT import option at that time.
Thank you for your patience and help!
Have a good evening, as it is time for me to go home to get some sleep before coming back tomorrow morning.
