Default Workspace directory location

Hi,

Is there any way to change the location of the workspace directory so that it is not in My Documents\NinjaTrader .... directory?

(reason for asking is that I'd like to change its location to my Dropbox folder, so I can use and keep the same workspace updated across several computers)

Thanks

PS. I am using NinjaTrade 7

Hi rassom,

Unfortunately this directory cannot be changed within NinjaTrader. NinjaTrader is coded to use your Windows documents folder for custom items like workspaces.

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for quick feedback

With almost everything moving to the cloud this could be vital for NinjaTrader to consider. A simple solution actually, if we (the users) can choose our own directory locations.

Would you pass on this feedback for those in charge of NT development and let me know if they would change it so directory location(s) are changeable?

Thank you,
Rasmus

Hello Rasmus,

This is something you'd find in our Release Notes after the feature is implemented. You'll find the current release's notes at the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...ease_notes.htm

You could always request a status update at any time by contacting us via email (Support [AT] NinjaTrader [DOT] com) with the feature request number (203 in this case).

Hello Wyckoff,

Thank you for your post and welcome to the NinjaTrader Support Forum!

The Documents being stored in the cloud is still not supported. User sledge does provide a link to information on running NinjaTrader on a server.
