How to set up Studio's QA to be as efficient as Xbench
Thread poster: pcs_MCIL

I have been recently introduced to Xbench by a client of mine and I am amazed about how powerful it is. I am also wondering why Studio QA settings cannot reproduce similar results. My QA settings are quite basic, maybe someone more experienced can help me fine-tune them to reach the level of efficiency I get with Xbench.

I am simply reluctant to spend other $$$ for an additional tool when Studio could easily do the work.

it's not possible to fine tune Studio in a way that matches XBench. I'm using quite specific QA settings in Studio, yet XBench consistently picks up more issues. In my experience they complement each other nicely, for example XBench doesn't flag tag issuse but Studio does, I think. If anyone else knows more about that, I'd like to learn more about that, too!

However, XBench 2.9 is free. It doesn't have the convenient Studio plug-in capability XBench 3.0 has, but other than that, I still find it extremely helpful.
