Add option to exclude projects in solution
Idea shared by Geir B. - November 28 at 2:27 AM
Under Consideration
The possibility to ignore certain files by extension is great, but it isn't really suitable for ignoring entire projects in the loaded solution. I work daily on an enterprise application written in C# that has 150+ projects, and although most of them are unloaded from the solution, a great number of them needs to be loaded. During Visual Studio start-up, Ghostdoc loads/processes a lot of these projects which I only need to have loaded in order to build and debug. 
 
It would be really great if one could tick a box for every project in the solution that Ghostdoc should ignore, it would greatly improve startup time and I am guessing also memory usage and performance.

Hi Geir,
 
Thank you for the suggestion - we will review it for our Backlog.
 
In the meantime, you can try and see if GhostDoc -> Solution Options -> Solution Ignore List would help you. Using this option you can get GhostDoc to ignore files by name pattern.
 
Thanks!

Geir,
 
I was advised that due to a glitch the Solution Ignore List patterns only worked on file names but not file path (folders). 
 
This has been fixed and included in the update we are making available this week.
 
Thanks!

Hi Serge,
 
Thanks for the feedback. Your alternative suggestion seems like a good intermediate solution.
 
I've downloaded the release from this week and added a few paths to the ignore list, but that didn't do anything as it still processes all projects in the folder and sub-folders. Could you explain what the filter should look like if I want to ignore the folder "c:\dev\solution\someproject" and all sub-folders?
 
Thanks!
