Configuring the IDE, the Project and File Properties
You can specify IDE properties that apply to all projects or set project and file properties within a specific solution to control the way you build your applications.
Overview of COBOL Project Properties
You can specify default properties that apply to the COBOL projects in all or selected build configurations, and to individual files in the projects. You can also configure the IDE to automatically determine and set Compiler directives on the COBOL source files in the IDE.
Configuring Visual Studio
The IDE-configuration options you set in Visual Studio, in Tools > Options, apply to all projects in your solutions.
The COBOL project properties comprise some properties that apply to the project generally, regardless of the type of build, and some properties that apply to specific build configurations of the project, such as a debug build or release build.
To specify file properties
By default, files in your project inherit the properties set at project level. You can, however, specify properties for individual files and these properties override the properties set on the project.
To reset the file properties
By default, files in your project inherit the properties set at project level. If any of the default file properties have changed, you can reset them to the values specified at project level.
