  27. Hear hear!! Exactly our point (ever since AC20)
  28. &lt;br /&gt;
  29. It&#039;s fine that you want to discontinue rendering and saving in de BIMx viewer app, but PLEASE give us a way to save default settings for the BIMx models (eg. Sun Shadows on)!

  43. BIMx desktop application that goes with ArchiCAD for Windows annoyingly creates &lt;span style=&quot;font-weight: bold&quot;&gt;BIMx&lt;/span&gt; folder in &lt;span style=&quot;font-weight: bold&quot;&gt;My Documents &lt;/span&gt;where places some application related files like BIMx_Config.conf, BIMx_Export_Log.txt, BIMx_Log.txt, Engine_Log.txt and an empty folder Screenshots.
  44. &lt;br /&gt;
  46. &lt;br /&gt;
  47. The BIMx folder certainly belongs to the folder &lt;span style=&quot;font-weight: bold&quot;&gt;%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming&lt;/span&gt; not to &lt;span style=&quot;font-weight: bold&quot;&gt;%USERPROFILE%\Documents
  48. &lt;br /&gt;
  50. &lt;br /&gt;
  51. &lt;/span&gt;I tried to find a way to relocate this folder on internet and couldn&#039;t find a single solution, no option in the BIMx settings too...
