I have a issue were the Path and Template are grayed out I can't seem to figure out how to get it to let me change it.  I figured its a setting somewhere but Google search does no good.

If you want to change the path, edit the "SpoolPath=" in the spool.ini file located in C:\Users\Public\Documents\BuildingData\Fabrication 2013\BD_Imperial Content - US\1

Or do it in the dialog as well.


There is abug I noticed.. You will need to manually insert an extra forward slash on the spool path because the program will not do it automatically any longer if you use the PATH button.


If this extra forward slash is not present your spools will end up in the folder above the one you specified and have all the spool names appended with the folder name you were trying to write in.
