Is there a way to set a default solution .runsettings file in VS2013?

This is a question my coworker asked over on StackOverflow
[here], but hasn't received a single comment or answer. Thought I'd repost it here since I know the VS guys are more likely to see it here...
I'm using VS2013 with the built-in unit test framework. I've created a .runsettings file that sits in the Solution Items folder. When I select Test -> Test Settings -> Select Test Settings File, I am able to choose my .runsettings file and it works
as expected.
When I exit out of VS2013 and then re-load the project, I have to re-select the .runsettings file. Is there any way to set the default .runsettings file at solution level so it gets persisted?

I can’t get your issue on my side(VS2012 Update 4 machine and VS2013 Update 1 RC machine). If you are using VS2012, please upgrade it to VS2012 Update 4. If you are using VS2013, please upgrade it to VS2013 Update 1 RC.
When I restart VS and re-load the project, the .runsettings file is still selected
with the Select Test Settings File menu option and .runsettings file is still used when I run the unit test.
I doubt that there is anything wrong with your VS. As I mentioned above, please reset your VS settings through Tools->Import and Export settings->Reset all settings…
If no help, try some other devenv commands to fix:
1.devenv.exe  /safemode
2.devenv.exe  /resetskippkgs
3.devenv.exe  /installvstemplates
4.devenv.exe  /resetuserdata 
devenv.exe can be located under your VSlocation/Common7/IDE
What your need is to put it to run prompt and add commands to it.
If the issue still exists, please repair or reinstall your VS.
Meanwhie, if you have some anti-virus software running when you work with VS, please close them to check the reuslt.

  • Is there a way to set the default level of keyframe easing?

    I'm currently using the graph editor to smooth my ease-in / ease-out keyframes with 100% influence.  I'm having to adjust the easing of each keyframe individually. 
    Is there a way to set the default level to 100%, so that I can just select "Easy Ease In" and have it apply without having to go into the graph editor?  It would save a lot of time.

    No, there's not a way to do that, but it's a good feature request. You can submit feature requests here:

  • Is there a way to set a default "Source Range" in AME when exporting from Premiere Pro CC?

    When exporting a sequence from Premiere Pro CC, you are able to toggle between 4 drop down options within Adobe Media Encoder on what Source Range you'd like to export (Work Area, Sequence In/Out, Entire Sequence, Custom) as seen here:
    Is there a way to set the default Source Range to something besides Sequence In/Out?
    My reason for asking is that sometimes I export multiple sequences at once using AME's Queue. I add my custom presets to each Sequence and hit export, but SOMETIMES I may have accidentally marked an in point on my timeline and by default it's set to export only that In-to-Out part of the sequence.
    I know what you may be thinking...well, just don't add any In/Out points to your sequence on the timeline or clear them first. The trouble is that I often don't see them or catch them when working quickly. In Premiere Pro CC, I use the "Lighter Brightness" Appearance setting because it's easier on my eyes after editing 10 hours a day, 6 days a week. Sure, darker looks cooler, but it kills my eyes for some reason. Anyway, PPro CC has a troublesome appearance issue in CC where it's not "optimized" for editing when you change it to a lighter appearance like it was in CS6. I've already contacted Adobe about this and another appearance issue (involving highlighted clips when in Lighter Appearance setting) and they are "actively working on fixing this appearance issue asap". 
    For reference, here's Premiere Pro CC in/out points in default dark appearance (notice the slightly lighter grey area):
    Now here's that same in/out in "Lighter Appearance":
    Not exactly optimized. Can hardly see it. Good luck spotting that little guy on a long timeline. Sadly, this affects in/out points in the Source Window as well. Really hard to see.
    Conversly, CS6 looked the best (the blue REALLY stands out making things easy to see):
    So my question there a way to set the default "Source Range" to something else besides Sequence In/Out so that I don't end up doing what I just did and leaving for several hours while batch exporting only to come back and find that I exported only a "portion" of one of my big sequences?
    Thank you!

    Here is the solution:  Slow down. Give your project some love. Smell the roses.
    Agreed about the roses but alas my next project always calls. Actually, I think what happens is I give each project SO much love that when it comes to exporting, I've run out of time.

    Then it would not be a would be an option and you already have that option.
    Semantics aside, I would love to be able to have it at least default to whatever option was last chosen. Or, perhaps I shouldn't use the word default again...I'd love it to simply remember my preferred setting. That's all.

  • Adobe Reader 11.0.07 defaults to duplex printing. Is there a way to set the default to leave that "print to both sides of the page" box unchecked?

    Adobe Reader 11.0.07 defaults to duplex printing. Is there a way to set the default to leave that "print to both sides of the page" box unchecked?
    I am working on an end-user's computer, I just updated to the newest Adobe Reader and they don't ever print duplex. I want to be able to have the "print to both sides" box unchecked on the print dialog by default. Is there a way to do this? I have the printer settings all set to 1-sided but it is adobe print dialog settings that keep messing it up.

    Hi John,
    Have you tried repairing Reader and checked?
    Does this issue occur only on this machine or are you facing the issue with other computers as well which have updated to Reader 11.0.10?

  • Is there any way to set the default for *.doc document so that Pages opens them automatically?

    I have a number of Ms Word documents because I used to have Word for Mac before the last OS release.  Now, of course, when I double-click on them, I get a message saying that PowerPC isn't supported.
    Now Pages will open these files.  Is there any way to change the default for *.doc files so that a double-click will open them in Pages? 
    (Instead of me going to the trouble of finding out where they are actually located on the hard drive so that I can open pages and say - here, open this file--even though you didn't create it--)

    Click on a .doc file and type Cmnd I to open Get Info. In the Open with: menu select Pages, then click on Change All…

  • Is there a way to set a default wifi network for my iPhone 5s?

    I have two networks in my home. When I first walk in, my phone automatically recognizes my extended wifi network.  But since I tend to spend most of my time in the back of the home, I rather have it connect to that network.
    Is there a way to change the default?
    And no, I can't move the AirPort Base or AirPort Express due to the way the cable is in my home.
    Thank you in advance (hope I used the correct terminology). 

    I have an Airport Extreme upstairs with my computer plus an Airport Express downstairs. They are both defined to be on the same network with Airport Utility. My mobile device use which ever one is giving them the best signal even when I am down in the basement.

  • Is there a way to set a default From address for my iCloud account?

    Is there a way to have mail use my .mac address as my preferred iCloud address?  I have mail configured to set the From header based on the account I'm accessing, so my work email will come from my work account, and my personal email will come from my personal account.  I'd like to keep that configuration.
    Unfortunately, I use my .mac address for my personal email, and Apple keeps attaching new, unwanted email addresses to my iCloud account (, and now  Mail somehow sees three addresses on my iCloud account, and defaults the From header to   For a variety of reasons, including personal preference, I don't ever want to use the or addresses.
    Alternately, is there a way to delete the unwanted and addresses?

    I appreciate the reply, but it only gets me partway there.  I already have that option set to 'Account of selected mailbox' so that replies to email on my work account (a non-iCloud account) come from my work email address.
    My problem is my personal mail is on an iCloud account that, thanks to Apple, now has three email addresses associated with it.  So when I reply to a personal email,  the 'Account of selected mailbox' option frequently, but not always, chooses the wrong iCloud address for the From field.
    Ideally, I'd like to be able to tell Mail that it should use my .mac address for email from my iCloud account, and my work address for mails from my work account.  I'd like it to never use the .me or .icloud addresses.  I don't think there's an automatic way to do that.
    I'll likely end up filing a bug report with Apple.

  • Is there a way to set the default media kind in itunes

    I hate having to change every movie I make and add to itunes from home video to movie.  Does anyone know a way to change the default media type.  There must be a way using terminal.

    I don't know about making it the default.  You need some kind of mp4 atom editor and if you got it to do it via Terminal as default then you wouldn't be asking here, you'd be answering all the programming question on the forum.   It's probably coded in the iTunes application itself and inaccessible.  There's a bunch of editors out there.  I could name a few but I run a 12 year old computer and a 5 generation old operating system so they probably no longer exist for you.  I don't know that it would be any easier than doing it in iTunes unless you needed to convert batches of files at a time.

  • Is there a way to set a default wifi device, e.g. mobile on IPAD2 please?

    Hi Guys,
    Can anyone help with a way to set a wifi device as a default.  e.g.  I use my mobile phone through the day to access wifi and want this wifi to be the default.  Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Thank you.  I have home wifi and when I am out on job sites, I use my mobile phone to act as a modem/router for wifi access on the ipad.
    Rather than toggle between the two, I would prefer to set up the mobile phone as my default modem/router all the time.
    When I get home in the evening, it wants to sync with the home based modem/router, which must be the stronger signal.
    So, I would rather have a DEFAULT setting of the Mobile phone and not use the home modem/router.
    Does that answer your question?
    Cheers.  Julie

  • Is there a way to set a default zoom factor?

    I am running firefox on a media center PC attached to a HD flat-panel TV. Due to the high spatial resolution of the display device, and the relatively large viewing distance, opening web pages with a zoom factor of 1 is inadequate. It would be great if I could set a default zoom factor to use when a new web page is opened for the first time. I used 'about:config' to set 'zoom.minPercent' and 'zoom.maxPercent' to larger values. However, these parameters apparently only take effect when the zoom factor is changed for a page, and seem to be ignored when a new page is openened. And, of course, what I really want to set is not a range of allowed values, but a default value instead.

    If it is only in firefox that you have problems the ''layout.css.devPixelsPerPx ''can be changed. (That at least works in Windows systems see [ this thread ]; changing the interface as well as the content )
    There are also addons that may help, but unfortunately possibly not Linux compatible types.
    If it is all of your GUI including when you are using the machine offline then you may need to look at Linux, but I assume that is bound to have methods for changing screen appearance and resolution.

  • Is there a way to set the default view for the App Store to only show Apps for iPads when the Store is launched?

    I'm a new iPad owner and would like to set the default view for myself to show only Apps for the iPad when I launch the the App Store app. Showing apps for iPhone seems a waste of real estate for me and time spent searching for a particular app since I do not own an iPhone.
    Thanks for any assist. :-)

  • Is there a way to set the aspect ratio or file type in the camera for video settings?

    I always convert my .MOV videos to WMV so I can upload to my web site.  However, with my new iPhone (iOS7), the vidoes are distorted due to aspect ratio issues.  I'd like to set the output aspect ratio and.or file type when I create a new video on my iPhone 5s.

    There is no user setting for this in the native iOS app. It is possible that if you use some other 3rd party app you can make some changes to that, but I'm not sure. There are also no settings for changing the file type on the phone itself.
    I've not experienced any issues with distortion on mine, but it could be your converter. Have you tried another one?
