are compile settings saved with the project?

After I set all my compile settings… if I close the project and than re-open it… will the compile settings be as I left them? Or do I always have to give/save them as something first?

So long as you compile using the settings once, or click the “Save & Close” button at the bottom of the compile window, the settings will be saved in your project. If you click “Cancel” after adjusting compile settings, then whatever you changed since you opened the compile window will be discarded.
