Hello.  Thank you for the nice mac-specific upgrade.  One feature request I'd really like to see is a choice on where the RM Studio repository is located on the computer.  Right now it's in a folder in the home directory called ".RapidMiner" and it's a hidden folder (why??).

Thanks.

Scott

    Hi,

    the .RapidMiner folder stores all your settings and, by default, your local repository. This was done to make it harder for people to accidentally lose their data ;)
    Earlier versions actually asked the user where he would like to store the local repository, but that turned out to be a major point of confusion in usability tests.

    You can still change the location of it manually, though. Copy&Paste your repository folder where you want to have it, and then right-click on the repository in Studio and select "Configure repository". You can then change the directory to the new folder.

    Regards,
    Marco
