#82 Moving index file out of "library"

path (11)

There should be an option to move (or create in-place in case someone is low on drive-space) index file for open ZIM file to chosen directory, for example to the same directory ZIM file is.

It would be easier then for everyone to share index files between users on the same computer or between computers and to store and archive ZIM+index without need to search deep into "user" folder to find Kiwix's library and proper index file there.

Kiwix should also look for index file not only into "library" but also other directory like the one opened ZIM file is.

    80% of this feature request is implemented in the oncoming 0.9rc3 release.

    indexes are merged with the ZIM file... so it won't be possible anymore to handle them separatly.
