    Assuming you are using the latest version of the ‘Multiple Signatures’ applet, there are two ways to change the default path:

    1) Execute the applet. When the signature selection dialog appears, press the ‘Settings’ button. Select the desired location.

    1) If you are using Formativ Admin or Developer, open the applet in the editor and locate the constant called ‘OVERRIDE_PATH’ at the top of the source code. This constant will be set to an empty string. Enter the full path of the location of your signatures.

    I hope this helps.

    No, i am using the “add signature” applet and want to adjust that default location. What it wants is the signature file in c:program filesadvansysformativedatasignaturesuserID.txt, .htm or .html

    i want to change that to a network drive so i can move desks and carry forward my signature.

    Thanks in advance

    Assuming you are using the open source version of the applet, try changing the line:

    sSigDir = Utilities.GetDataDirectory + "Signatures"


    sSigDir = "m:advformativdatasignature"

    or wherever your network drive signature location if. You will need a copy of Formativ Developer or Admin to do this.

    I hope this helps.
