Working Directory

The Working Directory (wd), also known as the Current Working Directory (cwd), is the directory in which Siril works. Its choice is a crucial step, especially when using scripts. The wrong choice of cwd is responsible for 90% of script failures. This folder is selected by clicking on the Home button, in the shape of a house: cwd-button. This is the directory where Siril saves images by default (if no other path is specified) and also the directory where it searches for sequences.

Once the directory has been selected, its path can be easily checked in the title bar of the application window, below the version in use as illustrated in the figure below.
