Douments map

Post by NicoK » Tue Jun 20, 2017 9:21 pm

I remember that an earlier Softmaker version was able to prevent building a Softmaker submap under My Documents. Is it still possible, and how? I try to keep My Documents as clean as possible, only for real documents.
Thanks. Nico

Yes, this is still possible. Create an empty text file called portable.txt in the program folder. SoftMaker Office will then "think" it is a USB installation and will then write all settings and templates directly in the program folder.

However, this means you cannot install SoftMaker Office to c:\Program Files (x86) because that folder is protected against writing in Windows. Install to another folder on your hard disk or USB drive.
