Would be preferable to have synthdefs, etc. in App support to avoid

 That already happens, we made that change for 3.1:


and apparently all this book editing is stunting my memory! ;-)

This seems not to be documented anywhere, at least the SynthDef file
still says synthdefs/. This should either be changed or a symlink
created in the old location.

recordings/ should probably be moved there too though, yes? The
permissions and potential overwriting issues are the same.

maybe recordings/ should move to ~/scwork/ ?
new users may be nervous about fiddling in Library/Application Support/.

this would also encourage use of the startup.rtf file.

Hmm. Personally I think startup should be in the app support directories as well, and ~/scwork should be removed. I know what you're saying but ~/Library/Application Support/ is the standard place for such stuff, and I think it's best to have things in one place rather than scatter them around. We'd also need to force create ~/scwork for those who don't have it. I find it annoying when apps create stuff in top level of ~/. Symlinks in the app directory would make them easy to find.

3 cents ;-)
