6. Starting

    The first thing you will be prompted to define after the CloverDX Designer launches, is the workspace folder. Workspace is a place your projects will be stored at; usually a folder in the user’s home directory (e.g., C:\Users\your_name\workspace or /home/your_name/CloverDX/workspace )

    Note that the workspace can be located anywhere. Make sure you have proper permissions to the location. If a non-existing folder is specified, it will be created.

    When the workspace is set, the welcome screen is displayed.
