    • Hidden warnings, modifying the include path, path prefix


      I am using (SEGGER Embedded Studio for ARM, Release 4.12 Build 2018112601.37855, Windows x64) and there are 3 things that I noticed that I would would like some help with/suggestions. The first 1 item is obviously significantly more important.

      1) When I compile and there are warnings it requires 2 or 3 mouse clicks to actually view the warnings. You can see what I get in the first attachment. I have looked, and I can not find a setting to automatically expand warnings as well as errors. Nor can I find a key that would take me to the first warning/error.

      2) I've looked everywhere in the project settings, and I can't find the place in the IDE to modify the include path. And so far I've had to go into the emProject file.

      3) With #2, going into the emProject file, instead of ../../../../../../ it would be great if your examples and the IDE would use a SDK environment variable. And then create relative paths using that. For example, I've added to my .emProject files


      and thus my includes looks like


      and then the source files look like

      <folder Name="Board Definition">
      <file file_name="$(SDK)/components/boards/boards.c" />


      <folder Name="Application">
      <file file_name="../../../main.c" />
      <file file_name="../config/sdk_config.h" />
      <file file_name="../../../serial_comm.c" />

      Now to fully geek out, you could add PRJ="../../.."

      <folder Name="Application">
      <file file_name="$(PRJ)/main.c" />
      <file file_name="../config/sdk_config.h" />
      <file file_name="$(PRJ)/serial_comm.c" />

      thanks in advance.
    • Hello,

      Thank you for your feedback.
      1: Simply press F4. This should take you to the first warning.

      2: Try project options->Preprocessor->User include directories

      3: You can set as many macros as you want under Tools->Options->Building->Build->Global Macros
