I am using enterprise library 4.1, and am trying to pull the App settings for multiple config files into a single AppConfigSettings.config file using  <appSettings file="C:\Projects\ConfigFiles\AppConfigSettings.config">.

This works except when I try to open up the config in the GUI tool and make a change to the setting it reads in all the values correctly but instead of saving the change to the mapped file it drops all the values back into the web.config file and ignores the mapped file.  Is there a fix for this?

I think you would have to edit the referenced external config manually. Just like the behavior of the "configSource", it also saves the changes you've made in the host config file and not to the external. more of configSource
