Description Joseph Hanna 2016-02-05 02:17:19 UTC
Description of Problem:
I run three Xamarin work environments (work, home and notebook) and whatever preferences/customisations I make to theme, formatting etc has to be manually repeated for each environment.  Given we login to XS, can't we have these settings stored on the cloud and replicated through each environment - like Visual Studio does?  If I make a subtle change to C# formatting rules, it plays havoc with source control when moving between machines as each one is fighting to apply their own different format if I forget to apply the same change in the other environments - which happens as sometimes I do not use the home environment for several weeks.

Please persist and "roam" all XS settings, themes (including custom themes), policies, addins, window layouts and other customisations using our Xamarin account.
