$STRUCTDIR equivalent for user-specific structapps folder?

Colleagues,

When defining new structured applications in the user-specific copy of
structapps.fm ... is there an equivalent to the $STRUCTDIR variable? Or
is there some other notation I can use in structapps.fm to resolve
user-specific application file pathnames correctly?

I'm referring to the structapps.fm and structured application
definitions that typically live in
"C:\User\<userid>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\FrameMaker\<version>\structure".
I would like to distribute new structured application definitions in
this folder and have them "just work."

Thanks in advance!

-Alan

Hi Alan...

Sadly, no .. not that I'm aware of. I've been requesting this for a
while now, would be really nice to have a $USERDIR (or some such
variable). Instead, I use a hard-coded path to "c:\fmapps" .. then have
people install custom apps to that location.

Would be really happy if someone were to point out that I'm wrong!  :-)

Cheers,
...scott

Thank you, Bernard. That works!

Thanks also to Scott Prentice for his viable alternative!

Just did something similar. We used the <$FMuserdir> system variable for it.
In FM2019, not sure if that is in the older ones too.
:)
