You do know that you can set these settings in bulk at the project level? You can also see which ones don't have a specific setting set to a given value by using the element search feature.
I do know you can set these globally. I didn't know about the element search feature so I'll look into this. Thanks for the info.
Anyway, hovering over a field in the project explorer IMHO should actually show info about the field and eventually it's mappings
I agree, but I was asking about entities, when I hover over an entity I don't see any info. Do you see entities and fields as being synonymous?
notes... I don't see really how this is useful for more people.
Tracking changes to nhibernate relationships was a very specific use-case that I would find useful but there is a wider case for adding metadata to the model. We might want to store info about a field (i.e, maps to an enumeration), or a list of business rules that apply to an entity, or a list of use-cases an entity is involved in, or the name of a domain expert etc. Anything that affects / influences the design of the model really. A notes field on each model node would give us the flexibility to add whatever info we like to the model and it wouldn't require a lot of work on your part either.
Anyway, just an idea.
