    I want my documents to, by default, save to the 'Documents' folder on my iDisk, instead of the default OS Documents folder. Is this generally not recommended? Anyone know how to do it?

    thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I think the easiest solution would be to delete the local Documents folder (/Users/<username>/Documents) and replace it with a symbolic link named 'Documents' to either of the following:

    /Volumes/iDisk/Documents
    or
    /Volumes/<MM username>/Documents

    Does anyone know which to use?

    Well,

    1) iDisk is slow, so it would take longer to access documents than if they were stored locally

    2)iDisk sometimes goes offline, meaning you would have no access to your documents.
