Ok, disclosure: I am a DUMMY. Just started looking at DTP, having bought a license as it looked promising
If there is a good place for me to go to learn and not bug you guys with stupid questions, then please tell me.
I am using a MacBook Pro with a 27" Cinema Display and connected to a NAS on my LAN, which is where my working documents are kept. The MBP has an SSD, which is fast but size is constrained.
My first question is: How can I use DTP to index my files on the NAS under, say “Suppliers” folder, WITHOUT DTP creating a copy of every document that is on the NAS, in its own local data folder under? I am happy for it to create the database tables and indices, I just don’t want every file ingested to the local drive!
Further more, if I see a file via DTP and want to rename it, I would like DTP to go and rename the file in its original location on the NAS. Is this possible?
If not, then DTP is not suitable for me at the current time.
Thanks in advance,
