Im a freelancer jumping onto a job thats already in production. Id like to use the desktop app and have it pathed the same way as everyone else on the job but the default root folder name generated by the installer is different. I can move the root folder install easy enough but I cant change the name of it to match.
Is there a way to do this? I would grealtly appreciate being able to alter the file path to match so Im not having to relink assets throughout production.
The auto-generated root name: D:\Word Word Dropbox\JobName\files
What I am trying to change to: D:\Dropbox\JobName\Files
seems like it would be a simple setting
I believe you are not understanding the issue, Im not attempting to move the folder, Im attempting to rename the root folder.
The desktop app auto generate a name for the root folder, I would like to edit that auto-generated name. Is there a way to change the auto-generated name for the root folder
This is important in a production enviropnment so all users can have the same paths and share project files. if the root folder is named differently for different users it will break links inside project files. This is a big problem for productions of all scale and seems like it would be a simple solution. Are you aware of a solution at this time, or are you able to elevate this issue so it can be implimented in future updates?
Again, i dont want to move the root folder, I want to re-name it.
I believe so, Im freelancing on this job and using an account managed by the studio so the name of the root folder is the name "[Studio Name] Dropbox", but some other users folders on the job are named "Dropbox", as I assume they are using their personal accounts.
Would it not be possible to impliment a way for users to rename the root folder? It would make Dropbox far more useful for situations like this.
