Changing Workspace Configuration File Directory
Read 342 times

I would like to change the directory for the Workspace Configuration file.  If I select <Tools><Workspace><Customize> and then select the "Options" tab, there is a "Browse" button that brings up a file explorer window.  I would expect to be able to navigate to a new directory where the file name that is entered in the "Load From:" and "Save In:" fields would be added.  The navigate window does allow navigating to the new directory location, but there is no "Select" button to select the new directory, so a new directory location cannot be chosen.  Entering a new file name in the "Load From:" and "Save In:" fields does crate a new Configuration file, but in the default directory that TurboCAD chooses.

Also, the Workspace Configuration directory is not set under <Options><Program Configuration><File Locations> window

How do you select a new (other than default) directory for the Workspace Configuration file?

Thanks
Tom

I dont know why you cant't Select a different cfg from different folder, they are typical placed in
C\Users\User\Documents\TurboCAD 2018 x64\Professional x64\Config

Remember to select both files With same name if you want to copy them from a Place to your current Config folder

The issue is, once navigating either to a new directory, or to a file in a new directory, there is no mechanism to select either. Normally, there would be a "Select" button at the bottom of the navigation pane, but there is none.  Double clicking on either the new directory or file brings up a windows dialog box associated with running that file that asks for the program association required to run the file.  So there is no way to select the new directory.

As far as I can tell, you're not allowed to change the location of a an Edition's Config folder.
