    Hi guys, :D

    I've got two applications and I'd like to share a folder between them. The trouble is when I create an 'alias' folder and place it within the second application, it doesn't work and the application doesn't treat it as the standard folder (as Windows/Linux would).

    Is there a way of doing this?

    Yes. You have to use a symbolic link instead of an alias - you must create these in the Terminal, using the ln -s command.
