Default Flux Izotope and other apps making folders in my Document folder

How can I redirect them elsewhere? They keep remaking them in my Documents Folder. I can barely keep that neat and tidy.

There's already an Audio folder and a Preference folder in MacOS. Why can't developers keep their apps in one place?

I e-mailed Flux and didn't get a response. I might e-mail izotope this week.

"Why can't ...?" - because they do not think. Some devs do it on Windows too.

Windows can use "Junction Points" to cross-reference the path to another location. But I think that the devs should make it a install option.

u-he does it well - alongside the plug-in file is a shortcut pointing to the location of the ancillary data files. No Registry edits, no Junction Plots. Simples.
