Default folder doesn't seem to work

Post by don81846 »

I've just installed Newsleacher v7 and am having difficulty getting the default folder path to work.

I set the default folder to "E:\Newsleacher\Downloads\<Group>" but all downloaded content is put in "C:\Users\DonK\AppData\Local\Temp\!NewsLeecher". When Newsleacher is closed all content in that Temp folder is deleted.

I don't get it! Can someone please help me to get the default download folder to work.

Thank you,

Don

Thank you Scuba, but, the problem seems to be that if the selected message is retrieved by simply pressing "Enter" the message is saved to a "Temp" folder instead of to the "Default" folder.

If a file is retrieved by pressing the "Spacebar", or checking the box next to the selected message, then the file is saved to the "Default Folder".

That seems like non-intuitive behavior to me.

I don't mean to sound offensive, I'm just trying to explain the issue.

Thank you,
Don
