Specify location for all folders

This option sets the default location for all resource folders

Select the folder icon  to set the default location for all KeyShot Resource folders.

Customize each folder

This option allows you to set the locations for each resource independently or add additional folders or shared directories.

Shared Folders

Shared folders will allow you to point KeyShot to access files in folders that are shared on a server or local computer. All shared folders will show inside of the KeyShot Library. 

To use shared folders you will need to select Customize each folder and click the folder icon to the right. The Configure Folders dialog will open. From there you can select the plus icon to add a new folder path. Selecting a folder and clicking Edit will allow you to edit the folder and change the path or switch to a default folder. At least one default folder is required for each resource.
