Global\File paths

This section applies to every application where the section Global>File paths is present in the Setup.

A File path defines the location and type of files that are used by several applications.
For example: a file path entry may contain the location of audio files that are used by the GML applications. Every GML playout application uses this file path to retrieve audio files from a central storage.

Central managed file paths prevent the need to have separate (file path) setups in client applications.

* Be aware of the implications when changing a file path for audio files which is already in use by Categories in GML applications.
