I'm integrating SHFB into our automated build (TFS Build) and one thing i'm concerened about is the location of the presentation directory.
We copied the prototype presentation and customized it to create our own version. We want to keep that in source control and use the latest version as part of the build. What I need is a way to tell SHFB where to get the presentation from. Can this be done?
If not, can this feature added to the next version?

P.S. The same is also applicable for the SHFG\Web directory since we are customizing that too..

Currently, SHFB always looks in the Sandcastle installation folder under the .\Presentation folder for presentation styles.  It lists the folders it finds there in the PresentationStyle project property.  The same applies for the web files.  It always looks in the .\Web folder in the SHFB installation folder for the web files.

I'll see about adding properties to override the locations in which it looks in a future release.

That will be great - Thanks. I'm currently working around this by copying the files to the .\Presentation and .\Web folders in a pre-build event
