The Manage Options implementation in Resharper 6.1(.1) is great. Jetbrains finally provided such a crucial feature for teams to share settings.
However, I run into some issues with the provided implementation making it not usable at the moment:
- The "Manage Options" dialog allows choose/create a solution option file (xyz.DotSettings) for the open solution.
However, it is additionally required to have the <SolutionName>.sln.DotSettings checked-in and shared to store the information where actual "Solution '<SolutionName>' team shared" options file is located.
It would be great to have the ability to use this file by default to avoid confusion and only have 1 .DotSettings file to be shared across the team.
- The bigger problem is that the path information for the used "Solution '<SolutionName>' team shared" options file is stored with the absolute path of the person creating it.
This means, each and every team member needs to have precisely the same paths and setup.
Is there a workaround for issue 2 allowing using relative paths from the .sln directory location instead?
If not, when will be a bug fix be available for this?
Are there plans to address issue 1? Or is it okay to actually reference the <SolutionName>.sln.DotSettings and this way only have 1 settings file?
Thanks in advance for the response,
