I just installed FARR (first time), and the file myaliases.alias is missing -- the MyCustom folder is empty. I'm actually an XML geek so copying and editing one of the permanent .alias files is easy for me, but I thought you would like to know about this behavior...

Windows XP SP3
FARR 2.30.01

On a good note, when I right-clicked and did "Add new entry" it created the file automagically.

Isn't this the desired behavior? When you just installed farr there are obviously no aliases that you added, and the file is created once you create a new entry. Seems fine to me.

The behavior is fine with me, it's just not what is documented.

I just installed FARR on my brand new laptop with Windows 7 Pro, but there was no myaliases.alias to be found. I created a blank txt file and renamed it to myaliases.alias in the my document donationcoder location. This made FARR recognise it and I was able to add new entries.

On another note: it's very annoying that once can't search for anything related to windows 7 on this forum because each word should be longer than 2 characters.
