default save location

Post by oxford_nick » Fri Jul 14, 2017 12:48 pm

Hi
Textmaker appears to save documents in the last location used
How is it possible to change settings so the default save location is always the same?
i.e. Documents
Thanks
Nick

We don't offer that in the user interface, but if you use SoftMaker Office Professional, there is a group-policy object for this:

This is a poor solution to the question! Setting a default save location needs to be developed into the user interface, just as it has in the products you compete with.

I do not agree that we have to mimic every single behavior of Microsoft Office.

We and many of our customers feel that our implementation of remembering the last-used folder is superior to always forcing people to a default folder. I personally hate it that Word always goes back to the same documents folder every time I start it.

And if you really want that "other" behavior, there is a group policy which can be simply edited with built-in Windows tools.
