NOTE: This discussion refers extensively to TheSkyX's Application Support Files (ASF) folder. Note that this is a description of the folder, not its name!...follow the link for details.
You may choose to use a non-default location or name for TheSkyX's ASF folder. This folder contains preferences, toolbar and window configurations, .SKYX documents, observing notes, custom horizons, imaging system profiles, field-of-view indicators, TPoint data and models, and more.
Here are some examples of why you might do this:
If you're moving/transferring/duplicating your settings to a different user account, computer, operating system or edition of TheSkyX, you can use the default ASF folder location and name for that edition and operating system.
