I discovered that recent versions of Kicad-nightly started to make a lot of sub directories on my system every time it is started:
I created an issue for this, and apparently it’s “normal” for windows & mac.
So I’m curious. What do you think about KiCad deciding where to put your projects. Do you want them in “…/kicad/5.99”, and then who knows where they end up when V6.0 is released?
Not too long ago I experimented a bit with custom templates, and I had to think of a location for these myself (and modify an environment variable). I can see some sense into having default locations for user “stuff”, but it should at least be configurable where that location is.
I can also live with (but do not prefer) KiCad making such directories upon install, but re-creating them each time KiCad-nigtly starts is tending towards madness for me.
So I’m just curious: What do you think about the best way to handle this?
