Change the folder name of the media folder

I would like to change the folder name that stores the images of my HelpSmith project.

How do I set the new path/name for the media folder, so the images will appear in the help project.



When you save your help project, HelpSmith automatically saves the media repository folder, which is named like "YourProjectName_files".

The media folder must be located in the same directory as your .HSM project file.


If you need to rename the media folder, you can:

  • Use the File|Save As command to save the project with a different filename,;
  • Alternatively, you can rename the .HSM project file and the media folder manually (for example, in Windows Explorer).
