How can we improve Design Master?

Give the option to disable copying of IES files to the project directory

Introduce an option into the standard options that allows disabling the feature of copying IES files to the project folder. The number of IES files introduced into the project directories causes serious clutter.

        Maybe it is better to have a sub-file location for all IES files that DM recognizes. So when I want to pull an IES file on a project I can go select from that file. Once selected it will then store it in the project directory. But, I will say thanks for making that an option in which I will be the first to turn it off. I now have about 40 project folders with the same ies files in them.

        Having a network location option / disable copy option for this would be much better and allow companies to handle these files as they wish.

        I agree. The copying of IES files is creating needless confusion and is not consistent with our project directory format. Now time is actually added because someone has to delete these files.
