Changing save location/directory

Message par Nino » 01 déc. 2017, 10:40

Hi,

my Name is Nino and I work for an University in Germany. We would like to test OpenBoard for our lectures.

Is it possible to change the default directory "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\OpenBoard\"? We save our files on a network storage. the only thing i found was the setting-page on github, which did'nt really help me with "App/DataDirectory"

Thank you a lot.

Regards

Nino

Hi,

There is a post on this subject, but in french (viewtopic.php?f=6&t=14&sid=69c4c940e8ec ... 802a20e5ae)

In Geneva, we use a network storage. In fact, we have symbolic links for the folders of the users (Documents, Pictures...) and in the file OpenBoard.config, we have under [App] the line DataDirectory={Documents}/OpenBoard
