    So we’ve now got this concept of “bypass” which is a help in multi-project solutions and that’s great. Unfortunately the target setting is still based on the currently focused file. This means that if you’re editing a multiple project solution and need to swap from, for example, HTML5 to XNA then you still have to hunt down a file from the “master” project in order to change the target.

    This might seem a little esoteric, but I find myself having to do this all the time and it’s really quite a pain to have to bring something from the root project into focus just to change the target. Is it possible to have a “solution target” drop-box?

    You mean a way to change all targets of all project at once?

    No, although it’s probably the same result in practice. I mean that I want a way to change the properties of the the build (target and debug/release) that will occur when I hit F5 that doesn’t require me to go and find a file from that “main” project in order to do so.

    To be honest I’ve no idea what the purpose of having separate build settings for sub-projects is at all but this “bypass” stuff seems to indicate that you think there’s some reason we’d want to have them. That’s fine, but as far as I’m concerned I’m only ever building one output for the whole solution and it’s the settings for that output (derived from the main entry point) that I’m interested in.

    I understand… I’ll think something…

    Ok, I’ve added a context menu in the solution tree so you can set the target of a project without having to open a file in the project, just rightclick on any project file and select “Set target…”
