Tool forget selected TC after fixing code

Tool fogets selected TC after fixing code
- select an active transformation in the project
- select 'build active transformation' resulting in some compile errors
- fix the compile errors (and sumbit back to project)
- select 'build active transformation' again
- tool asks to select the transformation configuration again! (this is unwanted behavior.)

If code was fixed (and submitted back to project) and 'build active transformation' is selected again, the transformation configuration
can be selected automatically (i.e. the active transformation of the project to which the code was submitted)

the 'lock to project' option is not a solution to this problem in case of multiple projects in the workspace

    Please retest this scenario in RSARTE 10. I cannot reproduce any problem related to active TC there, and I seem to recall that a bug was fixed which sometimes caused the "Select active TC" dialog to appear when it should not.
    The way it is intended to work is that when you press the "Build Active TC" button then an active TC is located based on the current selection. That TC will then be built. This means that in your scenario, if you build a top-level executable TC, but get a build error somewhere in code generated from a prerequisite library TC, then if you fix that error and press the button, typically only the library will be rebuilt (because the library TC is what will be found from the selection in that case).
    If you think this still does not work in RSARTE 10, then please clarify with more details in what way you think the tool forgets about the active TC. Are you perhaps looking for a way to more conveniently repeat the build of the previously built TC without having to locate that TC in the Project Explorer (and the option of locking an active TC is not applicable since you have more than one top-level TC that you sometimes need to build).
