The fact that the folder for user effects has the same file name as the folder in the installation directory always leads to confusion among users who are looking for this folder for the first time. This can also cause the user to accidentally damage the installation.
Is it possible to assign a completely different name to the "Effect Templates" folder in the installation directory that is not similar to the user effect folder names?

Renaming and reassigning the User Effects folder would probably be more problematic in terms of compatibility? On the other hand, a different name for the parent "Lightworks" user folder could minimize the confusion with the installation folder.

An easy renamed scheme would be for user effects to be stored in an aptly named "user effects" folder I guess ...
