How To Customize Where PDF Files Are Saved

Overview

Many of the StudioCloud reports, the invoices, and the estimates are PDF files that are generated and saved on your computer.  By default these files will be saved in your Documents folder in the StudioCloud Invoices folder.  However, if you would like them to be saved to a different location then you can use the instructions below to customize that location.

We have had reports that on some computers that have been upgraded to Windows 10 the Documents folder have been changed to Read Only and as a result files cannot be saved there. In addition, some users have been unable to successfully remove the Read Only attribute.  Using the instructions below will allow you to have the PDF files saved to a different location that is working.

This feature requires StudioCloud 3.1.310 or later
