    We just purchased Formativ PresentationPack and I am working on implementing the Stationery feature. I have about 20 users, and about 15 different stationeries that all users need access to.

    I created the stationeries on my workstation, and copied them to a network drive. But when I set up the next workstation, and set the Stationery location to that network drive, the stationeries are not listed. I also tried copying the files from the network drive down to the local drive of this workstation, and they still didn’t show up.

    Will I have to re-insert each individual stationery file on every workstation? I certainly hope not, as any time there is a change to any stationery file, I would have to return to each workstation to update the files.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    We are not sure why you are unable to change the stationery location. Please make sure you have selected the correct path and have full access rights.

    Note that, if you have any sub stationery (categories) folders then you need to select the parent folder. Consider the diagram below where you have two sub-folders ‘Example’ and ‘General’. You need to select the “C:testStationery” as your stationery location.

       - C:testStationery
             |
             |-- C:testStationeryExample
             |-- C:testStationeryGeneral
    

    You can also update the applet and specify an override path. Open the stationery applet using notepad, find the following section and provide the path. Please note, the override path option will take precedent.

    quote:


    ‘——————————————————————————-
    ‘ This is the override path. If you specify a path for this value, the applet
    ‘ will use the path to save data in. Leave this constant empty to have formativ
    ‘ automatically determine and build the data directory for you.
    ‘——————————————————————————-
    const OVERRIDE_PATH = “”


    Hope this helps.

    How do you open the stationery applet with Notepad? Is this what I would do if I want to deploy to 30 users silently and have the default stationery location set to a network location automatically?
