Has anyone successfully changed their start directory? I don't mean the working directory - I know how to change that. There is a config option file_open_default_folder which controls this. I want the default because I want the directory to change depending on whether I am working in a linked session or not. I want to change the start directory when I am not in a linked session. By default it is "My Documents". I want to change it to something else yet still keep file_open_default_folder set to default. Has anyone done this? Yes I know I could create a mapkey for both cases but there seems like there should be a better way ... Chris

I have a couple windows shortcuts that have the 'start in' path changed as needed. Because I don't have any type of config.pro, or config.sup at the loadpoint, pro-e then loads the config.pro file at the path specified in the shortcut.
But, the path will not be changed until I exit pro-e and re-launch using a different shortcut (and a different start in directory path)

A number of people have suggested changing the "start in" field for the shortcut to launch Pro/E. That field sets the initial Working Directory not the Start Directory. If you change that field and then do a File -> Open after launch it still points to "My Documents" Chris
