Hello. I have asked for this simple feature for (Literally) years. Previously you said "no problems" and it would be done, but here we are in 2020 and its still outstanding. PLEASE can you get "Set working directory" to remember the directory that was set?. I have a NAS, and for me this is a big deal, so much so, I dont have the patience to use APP as, every time I have  to map to my NAS, then the following time APP is opened, it defaults to Documents.

Thank you

Adrien Richardson

Yes, some things have been promised a bit too early I think, agreed. This will be part of the "save settings" request which Mabula is working on. Sorry for the delay in this I totally understand.

Hello Vincent

I held my breath that FINALLY ! the most basic option possible, that is, to save the default directory, was implemented in 1.079...but alas this was not to be.

I have already asked this multiple times before, but when will this be done, so I can finally use a program that I have been paying for since its it introduction?.

You would think it would be an easy fix but it would appear to be not.

I have no time-frame myself regarding this, @mabula-admin should have. Can't be taking too long anymore as I do know it is on his short-list. I think this particular thing isn't very hard no, I guess he wants to introduce this in 1 go as part of a bigger settings-feature.

I have always found this immensely annoying that I cant set my default directory to be on a separate disk.  It irritates me everytime I open the software - its bad enough it takes so long to do the license check before you can even select the default folder button.

once again I ask for this option to rise up the priority queue.  Of all the software packages I use for my I.T. work or hobby, (and I use a lot)  the lack of being able to set the default drive / folder in APP is by far the most annoying  !!  Particular as I quite often exit and re-enter APP after an integration or experimenting with settings due to the lack of a "settings reset" option.  (that should be addressed too)

 

Having to press the up arrow 4 times, find my D: drive amongst my many local and mapped network drives, then find the D:\APP folder amongst 78 other folders on that disk is extremely annoying.

 

And whats with the 12 second delay before you can even set the working directory ?  I can see its verifying the license and doing something else   The program just sits there totally unresponsive.

That is so bloody frustrating !!!!!!!!!

I'll add my name to the list of Owners with this request.  I've also found it quite annoying that I have to constantly redefine what I want to use as a working path.

Hello

I have been asking this 5 times over 2+ years now, but still no solution. PLEASE allow the "Set working directory" to be selectable by users, and other than "Documents".

Every time I restart APP it reverts back to documents. Surely it cant be that hard to do?

Adrien

@adrien  this still annoys the crap out of me  - not as much as having to wait for the license check at startup - I find that exceptionally offensive.  I get in and out of APP quite frequently to reset the settings - and quite often I just quickly want to see what a certain image looks like.   Lack of attention to the User Interface Experience was a contributing factor to me jumping ship to PixInsight recently.
