How to move the Softmaker file.

Post by Kilgetty » Tue Jul 14, 2015 2:21 pm

Hi, I have just installed Freeoffice and it makes a file in my "Documents" folder, I would prefer it to be in my "User" folder. There is provision in Tools/File to set the location of preference but unfortunately Freeoffice keeps changing it back to the "Document" folder. Is there any way I can make my change stick?

You can change the template folder in Tools=>Options=>Files but you cannot change the folder for the settings. They will always be stored in the documetns folder of your Windows. If you don't want that, you can create a mobile version (USB version) and use it instead. The USB version stores the templates and settings directly into the program folder:
