Lately I've been switching between my desktop and my tablet a lot which
is where the request comes from. As of now I have a system setup to sync
my TwistedBrush program and user files over the network, to my tablet so when I go out I have my book pages, brushes, settings...etc However it can be a bit iffy at times as I do not always have time to do a sync before heading out, which then leads to having to spend a lot of time merging things when I get back from a trip or an artistically productive outing. A real portable version that could just live on a USB key would be overall a much better solution.
As a bit of a bonus you would also gain a bit more exposure as then TwistedBrush would become listed on websites that highlight portable programs.
Thanks for the feature request. This has been requests a couple of times before. I will be curious what feedback we will get here for other users.
Some alternate ideas.
- Being able to specify the location of stored data so that networked drive could be used (for example a dropbox folder).
- There may be a solution for you where you can just set up a third party program and service to keep your TB always synced in the background. I'm am sure there are a number of solutions out there that will do this.
- Perhaps installing TB into a Dropbox folder would work.
I already do #2 on the list, the issue is that if I'm in a hurry which is most of the time I forget to turn the tablet on and let it sync before leaving the house. Leaving my tablet on all the time to 24/7 to keep it synced is not on my radar either. where I live it cost $0.21 per kw for power and my tablet in a state where it can stay always synced uses 35watts or $64.38 a year, that's a lot of money to pay compared to free.
Yes that is correct Rolan the virtual store is completely managed by Windows when software tries to write data into the Windows default program directory (Program Files).
Glad to hear it's working with the dropbox folder installation. This type of thing has been requested by others in the past so I suspect this information can be useful to others as well.
