Ron, it’s not possible to change the config directory.  Presumably you’d like to do this to share configs between products and across multiple machines or users?

Currently, that’s not safe to do.  If two tried to change the file at the same time or if, for example, Dropbox was syncing in the middle of access, there can be issues caused.  Hence we don’t let you change the directory. 

Later this year we’ll be releasing a Cloud Sync capability that’ll make it easy and safe to share these files.
