Question - IDE Quick question: How do you set a configuration to be the default for a specific export?

    Here's what the doc says about it:

    So, once I select the configurations with their respective exports, it should start associating the correct configurations with their corresponding exports, right?

    That doesn't work for me, every time I switch the export, it keeps the same configuration. I have to manually change it.

    Maybe I'm interpreting the doc the wrong way... or maybe it's broken? Any help is appreciated.

    There is a little target icon in the upper right of the screen with the current target displayed next to it.

    Yeah, how else do you think I'm changing the target and configuration? :p

    The wording is wrong on that... sorry! Configs work the same as the rest of the compile options and may need changed. For example if you select iOS > YYC and then switch to Android to compile using the VM, the YYC will still need to be changed to VM along with the target platform.. Configs are the same and the currently selected config will be applied to whatever platform is chosen.

    What it should say is that your configurations will be shown in the target manager and can be applied to any export target.

    I see, thanks for the quick response! Should I submit a report about it?

    Yes please! I'm currently updating helpdesk articles and not working on the manual, and when I get to the manual I'll have forgotten about this. :)
