How to Save Open Live Writer Drafts to Dropbox (or any other location)

I have OpenLiveWriter on two desktops and one laptop. I sync my drafts to Dropbox. Here’s how:

1. Open Regedit

2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\OpenLiveWriter

3. Create a new String Value

Name: PostsDirectory

Value: Path to dropbox, mine is C:\Users\jon\Dropbox\posts

Close and re-open up OpenLiveWriter, safe a draft and you can now see it saved to your Dropbox folder
