Working directory vs Project directory

Hi Mabula,

I'd love to see a separately configurable directory for where APP stores it's working files (the .dat files) separate to where it stores completed files. 


Because I use cloud compute to run APP. I get free temporary storage - it's fast, but gets cleared every time I reboot. So it would be great to store data here that is transient.I configure my VM to shut down with APP completes, so I can't store completed files in the temp storage, they'll just get erased

I have permanent storage, but it costs - both for space and speed. I want my finished files in here, but not the working files.

Hence the need for two directories.

Nice suggestion, this can all be integrated when Mabula has his "save features" option programmed, no idea myself when that'll be but it shouldn't take a lot of versions anymore.
