I'm using Studio 6.2.1153.

 

When I add or change an include path, Studio pops up a window that invites me to type in the new path or make changes to an existing entry.  However Studio ignores anything I type in there.

 

The only way to add or change is to click on the browse thing.  Doing the browse is okay but it seems a bit bizarre to offer a place to type something and then ignore it.

 

Am I the only one that has noticed this?

Never noticed because I always start with the [...] on account of the fact that I don't ever know what the base directory is that the relative paths are relative to. If you just us "Avr_includes" what is that relative too? Or do you mean "C:\Avr_inludes" or something?

I know what you mean by the relative thing.  But when you have a bunch of paths there already, you can figure it out. 

 

And the problem also happens when you want to change an existing entry.   Sometimes I have an entry that works, but I want to move the folder a bit.

 

Once I have a relative entry that works, I can figure out how to add or change it or others.  

 

When using Visual Studio, where this thing works, I use things like $(SYSTEM_DIR)/whatever and $(UNIVERSAL_DIR)/something_else.   SYSTEM_DIR and UNIVERSAL_DIR are environment variables.  I don't know if this would work in Atmel Studio because typing in stuff is just a giant NOP.

 

Anyway, my original complaint stands.  Offering a place to type and then ignoring it isn't so funny after a while.  smiley

The SP1 is later than that, isn't it?

 

Have you tried the SP1?

No, should I?  Most things I read about SP1 are negative, but I suppose those with bad experiences would be more likely to complain.

 

I did look at SP1 documentation and I didn't see anything about this.

 

Have you tried to add or change something in the "Add includes" box?

 

P.S.  Another problem with this forum software is I can't see this thread while entering this post.  I can only see the post I'm quoting.   Not only that, but there is no link I can click on to open the thread in a new tab.  I could do both of those things in the old forum software.

Well, it's always going to be the first response from support, isn't it?!

It does seem (with the latest updates) to have fixed the issues I was having with earlier versions.

It does seem to have fixed the missing hex display in debug windows - and I didn't see that mentioned in the docs

Yes, that is a pain.

In Chrome, I use its 'Duplicate Tab' feature...
