The AddToManagers property controls whether a file is added to managers.

Common Usage

This property defaults to true, but is most often set to false on files in Screens if you do not want the file to be “active” by default.

For example, if a .mp3 file has its AddToManagers set to false, it will not begin playing automatically when the Screen is created.
