Changing the Datafiles Folder

If you have not already done so, please read about Files and File Locations in this User Guide.

The first thing to do is to create the new folder. The name and location of the folder is up to you.

Once you have the new folder, move your datafiles into to it.

Finally, select Change Datafiles Folder... under the Datafiles menu. This will bring up the following dialog window:

Click the Change It button, which will bring up a standard Open dialog. Navigate to the new datafiles folder, so that you see the name of the new folder in the popup menu at the top of the dialog.

Click the Select button at the bottom of the window, and the change will be made. The Datafiles menu will be rebuilt, using the datafiles in the new folder.

Checking Your Change

If you get to experimenting with different folders, you may become uncertain about exactly which folder you've settled on.

In that case, you can select Show Datafiles Folder in Finder in the Files menu, and the folder containing your folder will be opened in the finder with your datafiles folder selected.
