I worked on a very large project large month with many folders for each task. Now I want to move each of these one level down in the folder hierarchy on my local computer. This was a server project where I checked out each task from the customer's server and was connected to an online TM all the time.

I'm not certain how to proceed with this. As this project continues the month that come I want to get the folder structure right now before it proceeds this month.

I can't find any option for this anywhere.

Moving local projects Aug 6

You can put the local project folder anywhere you want.

To set the default location, go to Options > Locations > Projects folder

To set the location for an individual project, move the project folder to the desired location, then register the new location by going to MemoQ tab > Open project > Open project > browse to the project folder in its new location > open the project folder > double click the project.mprx file

I only get the option to remove the item from the list, no option to browse to its new folder Aug 14

I tried now in the project list on the MemoQ tab page to open a project I just had moved manually by copying and pasting the project folder, but received this message:

memoQ cannot open this project because the files no longer exist in
their original location.
Do you wish to remove this item from the list?

I can only click on No, and after that I get no further.

MemoQ tab Aug 15

If you can see the Project list you must be in the Project tab. You need to be in the MemoQ tab (the blue tab on the extreme left), then go to Open Project.
