Share a same File watchers between all my projects

I have installed a custom file watcher. It works fine. But if I open another project it doesn't appears in the settings.

I tried changing the scope to "open files", but it doesn't change anything.

How can use  a same filewatcher for all my projects without having to reconfigure each project's setting, and when creating a new project.

Thanks

watchers are project-specific and are stored with project. But you can export you existing watchers and then import them into other projects using Export and import buttons in File watcher settings. See https://www.jetbrains.com/help/webstorm/2016.2/file-watchers.html

 

If you miss 'global' file watchers, please vote for https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-12478

Might be good to clean up the documentation so you don't lead another developer down the primrose path thinking that the documentation is correct ;-)

Not sure i follow you... the docs are up-to-date - since 2018.2, where https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-12478 is fixed, you can make file watchers global
