Make External only save in binary or XML format

  1. 6 weeks ago

    My projects are all saved as text, not binary or xml.
    But when I use "Make External", it only save as binary or xml, and not as text.
    Is that how it is supposed to be (would be weird...)?

    yes - this is "as designed"

  3. Hm ok...
    The reason for my question was, that I was hoping I can do it like in Delphi, where I have external code/units, which I can edit with whatever I like, and only refer to them in the uses clause and can use them, without importing or such things. I guess thats not possible with Xojo.

    FWIW, If you’re using a version control system like subversion, you can define an external in there to make a file or folder available across projects.

    Or, this ancient feature request (actually originally from fogbugz) could be handled ...

    at best only partially
    a single module with other modules & classes could not work
    there are issues with the VCP format that cant be bridged decently without a revamp of that format
