Is there any documentation on how to set up Mindscape Workbench in VS2015 so it compiles SASS partials into a CSS file and puts it where I want it? The Workbench settings are unintuitive and don't appear to allow you to remove or change an output directory once set. i.e. I want all the sass/file1.scss, sass/file2.scss files to compile by @imports in sass/custom.scss and output to css/custom.css. And it would be nice if it didn't produce files I didn't ask for, like screen.css and print.css. Microsoft like to do things like that and waste peoples time while they try to undo what they didn't want in the first place.
I'm using the pro version, if it makes a difference. I just produced a load of working HTML/Sass/Css/JS in NetBeans, dropped into VS2015 and tried to tell Workbench to output a .css file to /css but it thinks better. I had to @import them with the preceding underscore, which isn't supposed to be required according to the SASS docs. The workbench settings seem to revert to an output directory called /Stylesheets it appears to have invented and is not where I want the css files.
Once I deleted the Stylesheets directory, Workbench no longer shows the ... link to allow the selection of another output directory yet continues to recreate the unwanted Stylesheets directory. I deleted the directory in an attempt to get Workbench to allow me to change the selected output directory as it wouldn't once it had a setting.
Also VS2015 intellisense is complaining about missing variables in the partials. They're all in a variables.scss file. Isn't Wokbench/VS2015 intelligent enough to work that out? NetBeans with Compass is.
It's costing time and money to work out how to set it up, after it says it's simple on the sales lead. I'm getting to think I might have wasted money on Workbench.
P.S. Would have uploaded a screenshot but my path format isn't supported, apparently!
