Setting the Data Path in 2.6b4

There is a bug in 2.6b4 where trying to change the data path in the Advanced preferences will lock up MacJournal. Here is a workaround for this until the next release comes out:

1. Quit MacJournal
2. Open Terminal
3. Type defaults delete com.DanSchimpf.MacJournal StoragePathAlias and hit Return
4. Type defaults write com.DanSchimpf.MacJournal "Storage Directory" "~/Desktop" and hit return
5. Open MacJournal

Replace the "~/Desktop" with wherever you want your data to be saved. When you open MacJournal again, that's where it will look for its data.
