Points to the folder containing template ( *.tpl ) and report ( *.rpt ) files.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).


You can use semicolon-separated lists of folder paths.
