memoQuickie: locations for data & avoiding name length trouble

Most memoQ users never change the program defaults for where projects, TMs, termbases and corpora are stored. Usually this is not a problem, but some want to put things elsewhere, and if you have crazy clients (like lawyers) who are fond of file names that push the allowed limits for Windows, you may encounter frequent errors because of file path length (in many tools, not just memoQ - OmegaT appears most robust in this sense). To choose custom locations for your data and possibly reduce the chance of trouble with long file names, go to select the menu and dialog option Tools > Options... > Locations

and set the paths you want. At the bottom of the dialog is the possibility to shorten the temporary folder path length and avoid some trouble.
