Im new to Pycharm and using on Mac. its a bit confusing how/where pycharm builds the folder structure for projects. i have just reinstalled pycharm to 'start from scratch'
Im trying to create project1 in folder /jim/myfiles
it does create a empty folder project1 here but it also creates a project1 folder (and the venv subfolder) in another directory elsewhere. this other dir was something i used with my previous 'first install of python'
I have looked at the preferences menus and dont see where old pathname is still being used
where specifically can i specify where i want pycharm to install projects
