Setting for DataDirectory

Message par TheDrummer » 09 oct. 2018, 11:54

Hello,

I want to change the directory where OpanBoard stores my data. I added in the file OpenBoardUser.config the line

Code : Tout sélectionner

DataDirectory=C:/Users/UserName/Documents/OpenBoard
in the App section, and the Directory exists. However, this Setting is ignored, if I run OpenBoard again, new documents are still stored in the default directory.

What is going wrong? I am using Windows 10 1803.

Hi,

Your syntax is right. I see you trying to edit the OpenBoardUser.config file. I suggest you modify in the same way the OpenBoard.config file instead.
It is located in : C:\Program files (x86)\OpenBoard\etc\
