Changing the export path for layouts

You can specify an export path to any folder to which you want to export layouts as graphics files. You can specify a different export path for each layout and still export them all simultaneously.

By default, Dorico Pro exports graphics files into the same folder as your project file. If you have not saved your project yet, graphics files are saved in your Dorico Projects folder.


  1. In the Layouts list, select the layouts whose export path you want to change.
  2. In the Destination section of the Print Options panel, click Choose Folder beside the Destination folder field to open the File Explorer/macOS Finder.
  3. Locate and select the destination folder you want.
  4. Click Select Folder (Windows)/Open (macOS) to insert the new path in the Destination folder field.
  5. Optional: Repeat steps 1 to 4 for other layouts whose export path you want to change.
  6. Optional: If you want to change the file name recipe, click File Name Options to open the Export File Names dialog.
  7. Optional: In the Export File Names dialog, change the file name recipe for your selected graphics file formats.

    We recommend including the Page number token for PNG, SVG, and TIFF files as each page in layouts using these formats is exported as a separate file.


The export path for the selected layouts is changed. When exported, the layouts use the file name recipe set for their graphics file format in the Export File Names dialog.


If the export path specified is no longer accessible, such as if you receive a project from someone who uses a different operating system, Dorico Pro automatically updates the export path to the same location as the project file.
