      It would be helpful to be able to change the default locations of the files/libraries. It was an option on the original Qucs.

        This is a big one for me !,  I don’t understand why this would be removed as being able to choose where data files are located is fundamental to using a good app,  & QucsStudio is a very good app.

        I don’t store my data files on the root C: drive,  D: is for all my data, makes backup a breeze , if I get a drive full the OS is still happy. I don’t have data cluttering up my boot partition image backups.

        Please reinstate the data home folder select option, it will be immensely appreciated.

          This is possible. Please read the program help (F1 key) or the following thread on this forum:

            I’m having trouble getting this to work. I have both versions of QucsStudio in separate folders as well as Qucs.

            C:\QucsStudio – 2.5.7

            C:\QucsStudio – 3.3.2

            2.5.7 only gave a warning about incompatible libraries in “user_lib”.  3.3.2 won’t load it’s “built-in” libraries like Z-Diodes nor User libraries due to finding “other” incompatible libraries in “C:\Users\Tom Hajjar\.qucs\user_lib”

            My goal is to put QucsStudio User files in a new folder “C:\Users\Tom Hajjar\.qucsstudio” to segregate QucsStudio from Qucs.

            Unfortunately I haven’t figured out what QucsStudio shortcut property changes that work.

              I created the following folder and put some test projects and an empty user_lib folder.

              C:\Users\Tom Hajjar\.qucsstudio

              Using a Dos prompt I get the following results:

                Finally got it working. Needed to accurately follow your instructions…

                qucs.exe -”c:\Users\Tom Hajjar\.qucsstudio”
