Proofing tools location

Hi there,

Is any chance to have proofing tools in other location than the one specified in manual here; https://www1.citavi.com/sub/manual6/en/index.html?proofingtoolsdialog.html.

Is quite counter intuitive when you want to make backup in order to reinstall Windows.

Hi, Patrick

I'm afraid no. The %appdata% folder is not only used by Citavi to store essential files but also by many other applications. This folder is for data the programs need, but with which the end user normally doesn't come into direct contact with.

Firefox for example stores its user profile data there, i.e. all your bookmarks, browsing history, ...

In order to keep your settings in all your applications, it's not a bad idea to include relevant folders from %appdata% and %localappdata% in your backup strategy.

Best regards
