Description Ian 2013-06-26 12:14:36 UTC
In the current Zip to App store, the developer has to wait for the build to compile, then choose the location where the .zip will go. Every time the folder is asked for, ugh.

It is more common that a develop will have an AppStore folder that all the build always go to. Being able to set that once will let the dev start the process and then come back when it's done. Now the work flow is jilted and needlessly labour intensive.

Not sure we really want to get rid of the dialog, but I can move it to ask *before* doing the build...

would that help?
Comment 2 Jeffrey Stedfast 2013-11-06 14:07:57 UTC
moved the dialog to pop up before the build instead of after.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

XS 4.2.3(build 24)

Now while doing Zip to App store, we are getting Zip Saving pop up dialog before building the application as mentioned in comment 2.

Hence closing this issue
