Btw is there some way to log which commands get actually executed from an alias after user variables have been resolved?

Ok, what I'm actually doing is the following:
I'm a software developer and we have several different branches which are in different directories. Sometimes I have to switch between the branches quite often, but most of the time I am working on a branch for several hours or days.

For this, I have added aliases that let me built project files with FARR. I only want to build from the branch that I'm currently working in - to make switching easy, I now have aliases that change the search folder to the branch I'm working on.

Really cool now, don't have to go into the options dialog all the time.

Thanks so much for your help and that you don't hesitate to ask  :up:

While I was copying the alias into the forum, I saw my mistake. I thought it should be like this:
d:\Portable\FARR\FindAndRunRobot.exe -launch "setuservar Common.NTGDir=e:\NTG;;;recachedirpaths"

The correct way, though, is to do it like this:
d:\Portable\FARR\FindAndRunRobot.exe -launch "setuservar Common.NTGDir=e:\NTG";;;d:\Portable\FARR\FindAndRunRobot.exe -launch "recachedirpaths"

Now it's working like a charm  :)

Sorry, didn't mention this in my previous post: I tried it, but that didn't work.
Is there an alternative how I can execute two distinct commands from an alias at once?

Ok it was my failure...when I typed in my alias and confirmed it with enter, FARR showed me the two commands and I quickly hit enter again, so that only the set variable was executed. When I type in the alias again and then choose the second command, it reloads the dirs properly.

Now the question is: how can I make it work so that I only have to type in the alias and both commands will be executed when I press enter?

@nitrix: Thanks for the tip, but it doesn't work properly. The user variable is updated correctly, but recaching the directory paths doesn't work. I have to go to the settings dialog and click ok, only then the search dirs are updated.

Hallo,
is there a way to change the search folder configuration, for example by an alias or a plugin?

Thanks,
Kanaille
