custom packages folder

    Oct 01 2018 | 1:46 pm
    dear all,
    Quick question: is there a way to move the packages folder out of the "Documents" folder on Mac OS to a new destination on an other partition? And/or better: to share the Max 7 packages folder with the Max 8 packages folder? Why: I just installed Max 8 which duplicated my huge packages folder. My main (SSD) partition is now almost full and I desperately need some room. If I could put the packages folder on a HDD partition, I'd be more than happy.
    Best, Alexis

      There's no built-in way, but you can use a symbolic link.
