Re: [REQUEST] Default library install location


ideally if someone tried to save to a bundled library there should be something that pops up and says you can't/shouldn't and then offers to do most if not all of that for you, however i would prefer to see it only saving the footprint to userdir, i think you will find this is how most other software would handle a similar circumstance
