Ambigous personalities
« on: April 25, 2016, 08:40:02 pm »
Hello!

I want to run codeblocks with different compilers, for testing.

To avoid rearranging settings each time, I added some personalities.
Unfortunately I found, that the personalties seem to use the same
settings. I had a look into the search pathes of the source file. They
where exactly the same in all personalities. How is this??

Actually I thought, the settings for each personlity would be completly
"stand alone".

I would use the ask option and then choose an identity.

Have you checked if a personality file is created and if the proper setting are in it?
Have you done a diff between the original config and the personality one?

Also in newer cb's there is the more drastic option:
Code
 --user-data-dir=<str>          set a custom location for user settings and plugins

Today it seemed to work. It still seems, as if the settings of the project have an not
exactly defined influence on the outcome. I still have a look at this.

I wouldn't expect project settings to be personality specific, only global settings. Is that what's throwing you?
