SoftMaker recreates User Folder, Change Location

Post by gistme » Thu Aug 01, 2019 1:48 am

Is there a way to change the Default Location for the SoftMaker Folder that is now under ~/user/gistme/

I store all my data on another Volume. I was able to change where it stores templates and backups, but if I delete any of the folders in the ~/user/gistme/SoftMaker folder it recreates them, like the bullets, samples, designs 2018,

With it doing that, I don't have the option to contain all those items in folder I want to (separate volume).

Is there a hidden setting somewhere where I can change that?? I don't like being forced to save settings and any other files in the folder the software chooses instead of the folder I choose.

I didn't try this myself, so I cannot guarantee it will work – but you might place the SoftMaker folder where you want it to be and an Alias named "SoftMaker" in ~/user/gistme/.
