    After reading this post and this Feedback Case #54580 I am thinking that it doesn't make sense (to me) that some options that are available en Shared are not available for macOS (like description) but other option is only for macOS (like Supports Dark Mode)

    As a user learning Xojo, I expect all the options in Shared to be available for all 3 targets macOS, Windows and Linux, and each target to have their individual options that only correspond to each one.

    I have to test 'Description' in the Shared options because I see a 'File Description' in the Windows options, maybe they could conflict with each other.

    What do you think?

    Maybe make a feedback case.

    I once suggested to move all the settings into one panel in the middle of the screen and not in a small inspector.

    Just tested putting 'Description' into 'Description' in Build Settings Shared and build a Windows app. I get 'Description' when I check the properties of the file.

    Then I put 'File Description' into 'File Description in Build Settings Windows and build a Windows app. I get 'File Description' and not 'Description' when I check the properties of the file.

    So, if 'File Description' override what 'Description' has, and 'Description' is not in use under macOS, why have the option there? For Linux? I can't test right now.

    @ChristianSchmitz Maybe make a feedback case.

    I created a feature request: Feedback Case #55997 as I understand this is not a bug because it is designed like that, but for me it makes more sense not having Description in Shared and move Supports Dark Mode to macOS.
