directory-dialog-avoids-network

Arguments: ide-configuration

This IDE configuration option could be enabled if you notice a long delay before a dialog appears in the IDE to ask you for a new directory. This option would skip the search for directories on other machines in the network, which is probably the reason for any significant delay that might occur.

This directory dialog is invoked by the IDE when creating a new project, when generating a distribution for the current project, or when using the Find In Files dialog's Browse button. If directory-dialog-avoids-network is enabled, then the IDE passes the :scope argument to ask-user-for-new-or-existing-directory as nil to offer only directories on the local machine. (If an application uses this function, it could pass :scope :local itself.)

This option does not appear on the Tools | Options dialog, but it does appear in the list of all IDE configuration options that is shown in the inspector by the Tools | Inspect System Data | IDE Configuration Options menu command. It may be set programmatically by calling (setf directory-dialog-avoids-network).
