Beautifier Profile Overrides - how do they work?
« on: September 11, 2023, 01:40:27 PM »
I'm asking because I have created a couple of these and I don't see any effects of them in SE. I have tried the following locations:
  • In a directory found by going up the directory tree
  • In the directory where the .vpj files are found
  • In the directory where the project source code is found
None of these placements have any effect; whenever I write something or press the Beautify button, SE uses the profile set in the Options for the language, not the one provided in the .seeditorconfig.xml file.

Go to Tools -> Options -> Editing -> General and make sure the "Apply .editorconfig, .seeditorconfig.xml settings" is "on".

The dialog that creates the .seeditorconfig overrides should probably at least give a link to this setting, or offer to turn it on if it's off when you're creating a new override.

Thank you - that helped.

A link to the help entry from the dialog where you add these overrides would be very welcome.
