I'm new to Flex and I'm creating lots of small short lived
projects while I try things out. I'm using Flex Builder 3
However, I'm finding that if I try and copy some MXML files
from one project to another in Flex Builder 3 they aren't
recognised as Applications in the new project.
eg I've got Project1 with an MXML Application, an MXML
Component and an MXML Module.
If I copy these using the copy command in Flex Builder and
paste them into Project2 they all appear as MXML Components. When I
build the project they are not built. But they are in the list of
files in the Flex Navigator and the Ctrl-Shift-R file list.
The same happens if I copy the files via Windows Explorer and
hit refresh in the Flex Navigator.
The same happens if I use the import command and select File
The same happens if I use the export command on Project1 as
archive file, then the import command on Project2.
I can't seem to find a way to copy any MXML files between
projects and have Project2 recognise the copied MXML applications
as applications. So far the only way I can do it, is to create NEW
mxml files in Project2, then manually copy the contents into the
empty files. Which is insane. Why doesn't copy/import work?
Has anyone else had this issue? I looked in the bug database,
but didn't find it.
