Is it possible to merge from a view in one to a view in another project with the View Compare/Merge tool?
The infrastructure for connecting file and non-file items between projects is complicated, and as a result we will be moving in the direction of greater project autonomy with clearly defined connections between projects. This means we no longer recommend that source be shared between projects. The View Compare/Merge tool was purposely designed not to compare/merge views from different projects.
The recommendation for managing shared components is to code a shared component in only one project, then check in the executables built from that project into other appropriate locations. When defects are found in the shared code, the corrections should be made in the original location. New executables with the fixes should be redistributed.
