Hi,

I've been using OE and OE Pro for many years now but one thing that I think could be improved is the configuration of teh download directory. Currently this is globally set for all projects through Options. It would be really handy to have the download directory also set as part of the Project Properties. Currently I do a mix of downloads to local disk and also to Network Shares. If I forget to change the otions they end up in the wrong place and updates also aren't synchronised.

Could this be added?

There is a way to do it. Create a new Folder in Offline Explorer, select it and click Properties. Change its download directory to what you need, click OK and drag the desired Projects to it. These projects will use the folder's download directory, while others - the default one.

You can create as many folders as you want and set unique download directory to each of them.

Best regards,
