Layout of Windows Diagram View not in DTR


After painstakingly having laid out all the viewsets to get a decent overview of the actual viewset navigation I had to remove the project and its contents from my development machine and recreate it. Apparently the layout of the viewsets is not something that's stored in the DTR.

But since the layout does seem to be saved (it's there after closing and restarting the NWDS), I'm wondering if it's possible to add the relevant file(s) to the DTR so my fellow developers can also benefit from a pleasant viewset layout.

So in essence, my question is, where is/are the file(s) located that store the actual layout of the window diagram view?

    Ok, I found out that the layout is stored in the "Model Folder/src/..." directory. Is it safe to add these files to the DTR?

      I went ahead and tried anyway.

      Adding the Model Folder directory went OK, but adding the actual diagram files could only be done from the DTR perspective.

      Doing a regular sync on another development machine gave errors, even after deleting the entire Model Folder directory. Doing a forced sync seemed to fix this, but that's a rather invasive action.

      Even so, the Window Diagram didn't show up correctly, and, assuming the file in question is named Foo.txWDWindowDiagram, we ended up with another file, Foo1.txWDWindowDiagram.

      The Component Diagram did appear to work though. Still considering the amount of coercion needed to get it to sync properly, we've decided to remove the files from the DTR.
