    hidden features, menus, settings

    Level 7
      We create flash applications for the Stand-Alone-Projector (SAP). Thus the
      default project settings that always start out with the run-configuration of
      HTML is a poor choice. (We have to change it each time we create a new APP).

      A) There does not seem a way to set this as the default

      Also, This is changed from the "Create, Manage, and run configurations"
      dialog box.

      This box is extremely hard to find (did the eclipse people deliberately hide
      the access to this!). Right now I have to go to RUN->Other

      Would this not be easier to find if it was either on the Properties context
      menu for the Project or even better for the application (in the navigator
      pane).

          Sorry, there is currently no way to change this default. For each new
          project, you will have to manually change it to use .swf instead of .html.

          There is one hidden trick that Eclipse does give you, which might make
          it slightly quicker for you to navigate to these: For the Debug and Run
          toolbar buttons, if you CTRL-click (instead of regular click) on any
          launch configuration, that takes you to the dialog with the settings for
          that launch config.

            How are you modifying the configuration to output a Stand-Alone-Projector?
