When the option 'Manage include and library paths' is on entries always appear in the global 'Directories and Conditionals'.

It says in the help that they will be added to the appropriate include path options.  When I add a 'C++ Builder unit' I would expect an entry under the 'C++ Compiler' options.  'Resource Compiler' and 'Turbo Assembler' also have include path options that are not used.

Steps to Reproduce:

It is quite easy to see what directory options have been used when something is added to a project.  I do not know what more information I can give.

I have noticed that the global directory option must be used for forms or else the linker will not find a dfm file.

I still feel that this request should be accepted because it will make project options considerably more organised.

Did you read 'Resolution comment' from Leo?
This is "As Designed". Is it causing some kind of problem for you?

The PM adds these to the global Directories and Conditionals so that they will be available to the C++ compiler, the Resource Compiler and the Assembler. This seems appropriate for an automatic facility that is never actually going to make intelligent choices for each project but should be expected to err on the side of being too general rather than too specific.

Personally, I find it much more annoying that it keeps adding paths like ..\ and D:\LIB\ (when I already hve d:\Lib\).
