Quick Tutorial: How to Set a “Primary” and “Secondary” Directory in File Cabinet Pro Version 2.9


You can configure a “Primary” and “Secondary” folder in File Cabinet Pro’s Settings window, and a button for each folder will appear in the bottom bar of the application’s main window. Clicking these buttons in File Cabinet Pro allows you to quickly toggle between two directories. To do this, simply follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to Settings in File Cabinet Pro

Click the File Cabinet Pro icon in the menubar to bring up the application’s main window. Now click the gear button at the bottom of the window to bring up the context menu and select “Settings.”

Step 2: Check the “Use Secondary Directory” Box

After the Settings window appears, select the “Folder Paths” item in the toolbar. In the Settings window you will now see a “Use Secondary Directory” box, check this box. When you check this box, an open panel will be displayed allowing you to choose your secondary directory. After you choose your secondary directory, the button for both your primary and secondary directory will appear in the bottom bar again (exactly how the “Local” and “iCloud” buttons appeared in previous versions of the app).

Check the use secondary directory box in File Cabinet Pro settings.

By default the title for each button will match the name of the directory you selected. However, you can now customize the title of the buttons in the bottom bar by changing the “Display Name” field for the primary and secondary directory (please note the ‘Display Name’ fields in the screenshot above).

Once you configure the secondary directory, you will see the buttons appear in the bottom bar of File Cabinet Pro’s window. That’s it!
