I would like DeLorme to include a Preference or General Settings tap in the Options tool that will allow users to set or change the default directory path for Delorme Docs. Currently the only way to change it is by installing and reinstalling the complete map program.
During installation I change the location for the Delorme Docs folder so it will be on a flash drive. In "Computer Management" I set the letter for the flash drive so it will remain constant each time I insert the flash drive into my desktop or netbook.
This all works fine for me until I forget to insert the flash drive with the Delorme Docs folder before starting Topo8. When the Docs folder is not found Delorme reconfigures the setup and creates a Delorme Docs folder on the root directory of the C drive. Now the only way to get this back to looking on the flash drive is to do a complete un-install and reinstall of the program.
There are other situations where a person may want or need to change the location of the Delorme Docs folder. It would be wonderful if this option was included.
I have Topo8 and Street Atlas 2006. I believe this would be a great option for all versions of Delorme mapping programs.
The End User Agreement permits the installation of either mapping program on a second PC as long as one is a portable PC and the program is only running on one PC at a time. I like having the Delorme Docs folder on a flash drive so I don't have to keep synchronizing the data.
