I'm a long time user of Atlas TI and I was eager to switch to version 8. However, this version doesn't allow to save the hermeneutics in the folders of my choice. Worse, one file contains all my projects. This is a very poor technical choice. First, I work with three computers and I imagine the mess when I export the unique "container" from computer A to B then to computer C then B again, etc. It is unmanageable. I need to have the hermeneutic of a project in the corresponding folder and on Onedrive in order to have my machines synchronized. Second, I understand that I lose all my "projects" when the unique container comes to be corrupted. Third, this unique container will grow up indefinitely and soon or later it will slow down my operations.
Of course, I can do a daily backup. I also know that letting the user to choose its folder is in the cards. Unfortunately, in regard of where I'm for the doctorate, I have to make a choice within the next weeks and for the next two years left:
- Go with a competitor right now
- Go on with version 7, but the license will expire in September 2017 and I will have again to look for another provider with the burden of exporting my work into the new software if possible.
So the question is: is there someone in my situation and who found a trick, any solution an end-user could apply that shortcuts the way Atlas Ti 8 save the projects ?
That's a pity and I'm very disappointed. In fact, I still wonder how developers came to such a decision
