When I start the tcMenu Designer it shows :
"Please Update tcMenu library from Arduino IDE"
and the "Arduino Library" shows a newer version number than "installed".
I have been unable to find where to update the tcMenu labraries and have not found a hint or explanation in the help either.
Please enlighten me smilie
Thanks in advance.

OK. I am a bit deviant when it comes to "default" locations to store data, libraries, project files etc.
I moved the libraries for the Arduino IDE to a different (non-standard) location in my "Development" software-tree. Which is on a different disk as well.
So... tcMenu Designer looks for the Arduino IDE Libraries in the standard location C:\Users\{me}\Documents\Arduino\libraries and... there are the old ones!
I have updated the Arduino Libraries here : F:\Projecten\Arduino\libraries but did not copy them to the C: drive. [facepalm] smilie

Anyhow, it think it would be nice if tcMenu Designer would take a clue from the Arduino IDE where the libraries are or to be able to define a different location from the 'standard' one. smilie

Thanks for a very nice product and additional tools, I really like it! smilie

Thanks for updating with your findings.

If you are using the Java UI (for Linux and Win 7), then the default location cannot be changed at the moment. However, in the newer version available free on Windows and Mac App Stores, you can set the libraries folder to any location, you can also turn the check off if you're using platformIO or other integrated build systems.
