This is long overdue! I waste so much time constantly navigating folders
Thanks for your suggestion on this.
VideoScribe 2.0 or higher allows you to save your projects as .scribe files to a location of your choice on your desktop computer.
This option should allow you to export your scribes to a specific location of your choice.
If this is not what you mean't please can you elaborate further?
Thanks for clarification.
I'm not sure if changing that location is possible at this time but if this proves to be a popular request we can explore the possibility.
I tried adding another folder. It is nowhere to be found. It is not online either.
I would image this would be a popular request. It probably is worth asking all current users. I'm sure there are a few frustrated users.
Personally, I use OneDrive so not having an option to have "base folder" point to OneDrive means I have to find workarounds for something that is as simple as adding one line to config window.
I hope this very simple change will be added soon.
Just an update on this one. Please make sure you 'like' the original post to vote for this if it's something you would like to see included. At the moment with 3 likes in 3 years it's not popular enough to get any real consideration from the product teams.
When it comes to the actual location of the base folder and how to access files it is out there but where possible we try to keep this of of public forums. We're not trying to hide it and we are happy to tell you and discuss it's just easy to delete something or move it by mistake and we want to walk you through it to try and minimise the risk of this. We fully understand this can be perceived as a little patronising but we have designed VideoScribe to appeal to everyone from experienced video makers to beginners and need to do what we can to protect data for all levels of technical understanding. Particularly as the important data (your scribes) are saved with randomly assigned number strings as file names so can be easily mistaken and deleted. So if you ever need help getting to your files just log a support ticket (http://help.sparkol.com/support/tickets) and one of our friendly support staff will do all we can to help.
@Barry - I completely agree with @Ibrahim's well stated assessment of the way we are being treated.
I want to add this - Not having complete control and ready knowledge of our file location makes it very difficult to trust your company. We don't know where our work is without spending time and energy looking for threads on forums and worrying whether our work is safe.
Then there is the idea that you need to name my files for me. Back in the days of DOS I could see issues with filenames, but Windows now allows at least 255 characters - I don't even come close to using them all, maybe 12 or 15, but I name my files something meaningful and easy to locate.
BTW, these two issues are some of the reasons I don't do more V/S projects and don't recommend your product to anyone. When people see my work they love it. But I won't tell them the software. Like recommending anyone in business, if I recommend someone that is difficult to deal with, then I lose credibility.
This idea that you control my work is a bigger issue than you realize. The number of 'likes' is misleading. I read threads like this and say to myself 'This is such a no-brainer. If they can't fix this, what else are they not doing? Will they continue to even support the software?'
I can see why you don't want this discussion on the forum boards.
Trust is a big issue.
Microsoft latest Power BI tools is a good example. I couldn't change font size on a graph X-axis and it was one of the least voted ideas, and it took them several years to do it.
Why so little votes, most likely because everyone thought that's it's so basic that surely someone is working on this as a priority :)
Am finding the same frustration. Amen to everything said so far. Please fix this.
I like to put all my work in one place for backup purpose. So if I can change the base folder location, it will be big plus for me. Thanks!
