default directories

Every time Dorico opens it defaults to This PC > Documents > Dorico Projects. Sure would be nice if that could be changed to ones’ preferences …

My understanding is that if you save a file to another directory it will remember that location. That seems reasonable, at least for the present. Are you suggesting that the program always default to another specific folder?

It remembers it for the session, but not after restart. There is, however, a “defaultProjectPath” in the Preferences.xml file which can be edited…

yes, editing this works just fine, but it should really be offered as an option somewhere on the setup pages.
by the way, are there automatically any backup or temp files created? where?

No, at the moment, Dorico does not automatically create backup copies when you save, and nor is there an auto-save feature. We plan to add both of these soon.
