In the project I'm working on some header files are not explicitly added to the Visual Studio solution, but Visual Studio finds them anyway since they are in the same directory as files that include them.
MyClass.cpp includes AnotherClass.h.
MyClass.cpp is in the VS project, but AnotherClassh is not. In the External Dependencies VS filter, AnotherClass.h is listed.
Furthermore, when using *Visual Studio's* "Find All References" for the class AnotherClass (defined in AnotherClass.h), the class definition in AnotherClass.h is listed.
But when doing the same using VA find References, the definition in AnotherClass.h is *not* listed.

Not sure if it is relevant, but the class AnotherClass happens to be an Abstract Class.

Is this a bug or intentional?
Is there any way to enable parsing of external dependencies in Visual Assist X ?

By default, if you open a solution, VA only parses the files that are part of the solution, or that are in the include directories and are referenced. Here, if you turn on the setting:

VA Options -> Projects -> File Handling -> if Solution is not empty

and restart the IDE. This will prompt VA to parse these extra files, which should have the desired effect.

Alternatively, if you want VA to parse and consider these files, why not add them to the solution? Unless you want them to be ignored for some reason.
