When I open the Get Info window on a file, and deselect the "Save as absolute path" checkbox, then close the Get Info window and re-open it, the checkbox is checked again. Is this a known bug/feature? I'm trying to convert all my project references to relative so that I can move the project between different users on my machine.
I wasn't aware of this, but it seems to be a bug.
The problem seems to be, that if you have once made the path absolute, it's sticky.
Normally, non-absolute is the default.
I was using the Xcode project import tool from the repository, and it imported some of my files with absolute paths.
I don't know how complex your project is, but probably the easiest to do (while this bug exists) is to just create a new one (and don't touch the check box for the new one ;) ).
When you create a new project, it is possible simply to drag files and folders from the old project to the new.
I tried that, but my project uses lots of groups which don't drag over. Could you add group dragging as a feature request?
Another option is to edit the .tmproj file. If you open it with the 'tm' tool, it will open as text.
That's what I ended up doing. Thanks for the help!
