    Does editing the Clipart and Samples directory paths in maker.ini work?

    RPC27

      Hi.


      I'm currently working on a few issues seen when rolling out Framemaker 11 through Xenapp.  Some of the dirctory paths prove problematic for what permissions the users have, due to restrictions in place by AppSense.  I've read that the directories can be edited within the maker.ini file.


      There is the global maker.ini file which sits in the application folder, and then another maker.ini for each user which exists in their profiles which should maintain any user specific preferences.  I have tried to edit 1, then the other, and finally both of these .ini files but with no change.


      Below is an example of what I have tried,  however after I launch Framemaker the path never appears to change, still opening up the default directories.


      Default maker.ini (with default directories in brackets)

      [Directories]

      ClipArt=clipart    (C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\AdobeFrameMaker11\ClipArt)

      Samples=samples    (C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\AdobeFrameMaker11\Samples)


      Edited maker.ini

      [Directories]

      Clipart=D:\

      Samples=D:\


      I was able to change the default directory for OpenDirOnStart successfully using this set up so hope i'm able to do it with these 2 paths.  Thanks.
