Changing Show File Save Location

Post by jmac » Wed Jul 10, 2013 4:53 pm

I'm sure I'm missing something straight forward here...

For show I'm working on, my show file (and I think check point file saves) get saved directly to the D drive (not to any folder/directory). I would like them all to go into a folder named to the show name.

The program automatically sets up a folder for the show Archive files, but doesn't seem to do it for the main show file, and I don't see a place to change the show file save location in the show save setup screen... (?)..

So, basically, I can't figure out where/how to change the show file save location... Thanks!

Under the File pulldown, just select Save As and choose your location.

I recommend keeping all showfiles in the folder called Shows. Once in the Shows directory, create a sub directory for each individual production. Save your showfile within that sub folder.
