Apologies if I've completely missed this feature, but there doesn't seem to be a way to have Eclipse share preferences between multiple projects. I'm coming from Visual Studio 2012 with it's nice Property Manager, which basically allows you to specify properties in another file that affect projects you add them to.

Project manager example image (fewer than 5 posts):

I'm not talking about the ability to export and import project preferences, I'm talking about being able to "link" sets of properties to projects and make changes in one place that instantly propagates through the linked projects. If this feature isn't available, is there some sort of bug report form or something where I can request this feature? It seems like an important feature for even fairly small solutions/workspaces where you have more than 4 or 5 solutions. I was hoping to make the switch from Visual Studio and MSBuild to Eclipse and g++, but this is the only thing that's holding me back.

Any tips?

Thanks,
Matt

Could you specify what you want to accomplish? AFAIK in Eclipse you cannot manage the properties of several projects at once. But perhaps there is another solution to your problem.

Before you ask
- search this forum
- see the FAQ http://wiki.eclipse.org/CDT/User/FAQ
- google

I'm trying to find a way to manage project preferences for multiple projects at once, and have only 1 place to make a modification that will affect all projects.

Since that's available in Eclipse, do you know if there is a plan for this feature to be added? Or can you refer me to another cross-platform IDE that supports this feature?
