Hi,

It seems the user scope has priority over the installation and workspace scope.

If I define a preference in the workspace scope it is overwritten by the same preference in the user scope.

Is it somehow possible for some important workspace preferences to ignore the user scope?

Best regards
Tobias

No, that's currently not possible. For the time being we aim at guiding users, not constrining them. But I can see that,
especially in corporate environments, it could make sense to force certain preferences (or tasks in general) on users.

So that means, for all tasks, the user settings will win on conflicts?

Does there already exist any bug or feature request for this?

Best regards
