In My Asp.Net 2.0/ Visual Studio 2005 project, i have bunch of pdf's stored under various sub folders. I want to update the Build Action property to content to all of these pdf files. Is there any easy way to list all the pdf files in a solution so that i can update the property. Now I have to select each pdf file folder by folder.

Thanks for any help.

You might be able to open the .csproj/.vbproj file and find the list of .pdf files, and change the "Build Action" there...

That's right. You can open the project file in a text editor and modify the settings there.
