Available options:
  1. Settings Folder - a folder containing your personal settings files. Please note that this folder is not meant to contain the settings, shared among team members for a specific solution. It should be used for storing your personal settings, for back-up purposes for example. For settings sharing please use options available at 'Settings Sharing' options page.
  2. Available Settings - a list of settings files found in the specified folder.
  3. Update Button - updates the selected setting file with the current Resharper configuration. Please note that any changes made in the Resharper Options dialog might not get saved to a file, because they were not yet applied. You'll need to reopen the dialog to get those settings saved.
  4. Add Button - creates a new settings file.
  5. Remove Button - removes the selected settings file.
  6. Default settings file - you can specify which of the availale settings will be loaded for solutions without shared settings.

The content of this page is only available if you have opened a solution.

Available options:
  1. Settings sharing for current solution and scope. When you share settings a file containing current Resharper settings gets created in a current solution folder and will be automatically loaded when you open the solution and updated when you close the solution.
    1. Not shared - disables settings sharing. It will remove all shared settings from the solution folder.
    2. Shared across team - creates "Shared.R#Settings" file in a current solution directory, containing current Resharper settings. This file will be loaded automatically for all solutions in the same directory.
    3. Shared across team, per solution - creates a file with the solution name in a current solution directory, containing current Resharper settings. This file will be loaded and updated automatically for the current solution only.
  2. Update Button - updates the currently loaded settings file with the current Resharper configuration. Please note that any changes made in the Resharper Options dialog might not get saved to a file, because they were not yet applied. You'll need to reopen the dialog to get those settings saved.
