In the Options menu item, define the default setting for FileLinker.
Default Project Folder: Under the Default Project Folder item, define the default location of the project folder. To do this, click the folder button and select Change Folder from the menu.
My Links folder (Project Center): Specify here the location of the FileLinker link list (Project Center).
My Templates folder: Specify the location for your templates here. If there are folders with the same name in the FileLinker template folder, files stored there will automatically be copied to the new folder.
Example: If a subfolder named \Tables has been defined in the FileLinker folder \My Templates, which contains a table file (e.g. Calculations.xlsx), then this file will automatically be copied to the newly created folder \Tables.
In the Attachment subdirectories section you define the subdirectories that should be created for a project.
Tip: To get a quick Windows Explorer access to the defined folders, you can use the buttons with the folder icon.
Tip: Use a OneDrive/Sharepoint (cloud storage) or network folder as the storage location for the project folder if you work in a team or at different workstations (e.g. Office and Home Office).
My Project Maps: Use this option to edit your project maps templates. It will automatically open Windows Explorer with the Project Maps templates location.
Use Project Center Map: Check this option if you want to use a Project Center Map instead of the FileLinker Project Center.
Disable fixed subdirectory: Check this option if you do not want a default document subdirectory (\01 Documents) to be automatically created in the project folder.
Open INI file: This option opens the FileLinker INI file with the Windows editor.
Open folder file: This option opens the folder file used as definition for creating the subdirectories.
Activate Project Folder Map: This option determines the location of a project map folder. This option is needed when several users want to work on a project map at the same time.
Deaktivate Project Folder Map: This option disables the option of external storage for project maps.
