I wanted to have an adventure today and tried to use SVN branching. I’ve still got plain vanilla external items - a mix of binary files and xml.
After finding out how this work in Cornerstone I open my freshly branched project and notice that every §$%& project item points to the main branch. Does Xojo use aliases or relative paths? No, it seems to be absolute paths.
I tried to reimport all 480 classes and almost as many icons but only managed to make a mess.
Why does Xojo try to be clever? Why does this clever fail?
Does anyone have an idea how to handle this? The main problem seems to be the name of the parent folder. When I rename that to the old name then the external items are found.
At the moment I don’t want to change to text format.
Xojo 2013r4, Mac OS 10.9.2.
