We are aware of all those issues and that is why we have reworked ExternalStyleSheets completely
In the upcoming version Q2 2008 external style-sheets will be be much more
flexible. You will be able to add an external style-sheet and then specify the way it should be resolved. You will be able to resolve it by relative path
, absolute path
, or embed the XML file as a project resource
and use it by resource name
. Additionally, you will have the option to load an external style-sheet from an web URL. This basically covers all possible scenarios that people might need.
Fortunately, your two requests match exactly the way we have implemented that functionality:
1. You will have a way to tell that the path is relative.
2. ... and yes, it will be relative to the Project Root :)
You can expect the new Q2 2008 version at the end of July.
Here is a little teaser of what the new external style-sheet editor will look like:
We really hope that you will like it.
