...and the Select Scoreboard Folder dialog will be displayed.

 

Whatever folder you specify ShowPro will create a folder within that folder named according to the scedule ring day that is selected. Each class will be in its own file, this is how the scoreboard operators need them.

 

Usually you'll be providing these files directly to your scoreboard operator, a good plan might be to save the files directly onto the operators memory stick.

Scoreboard File Locations Dialog

A message will appear to let you know where the file were saved.

This is what the files will look like when you navigate to the folder...
