ADE only looks for Digital Editions under your Documents Folder, however you can fool it by setting up a symlink in the Documents folder named Digital Editions that points to the right place (using ln -s in the command line ie ln -s /Volumes/SecondDrive/ebooks/de ~/Documents/Digital\ Editions).
Thanks for responding so quickly, Jim.
I'm kind of a novice when it comes to command line stuff. Would I go into Terminal to do this and then just type "ln -s /Volumes/SecondDrive/ebooks/de ~/Documents/Digital\ Editions"?
Do I replace the "/Volumes/SecondDrive/ebooks/de ~/" with the path that I want it to point to?
You got the basic idea. I would:
- Make sure you quit ADE
- Copy your current Digital Editions folder to where you want it to be (important make it a copy) and maybe rename it if you don't want it to be called Digital Editions.
- Rename the Digital Editions folder in your Documents folder to something like "Old Digital Editions"
- Open up Terminal window and type ln -s (and add a space at the end)
- Drag the folder that you created in step 2 onto the terminal window - this will add the full path onto the command line (ie the /Volumes/SecondDrive/ebooks/de above)
- Type in a space and then "~/Documents/Digital\ Editions" without the double quotes into the terminal.
- In a finder window make sure it worked by making sure there is now a "Digital Editions" folder that opens up to the folder you created in step 2.
- Launch ADE and make sure it still works.
That worked perfectly. Thanks, Jim.
