Summary0002117: Extensions installed for Windows not in the same location for Mac.
DescriptionOn my home computers, (Windows 10 Dell Desktop, macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 MacBook Pro, and macOS 10.15.1 Catalina Mac mini) I run a Synology with Synology Drive set up to synchronize various folders. The Documents folder and the Inform Extension folder on Mac are two of them. Unfortunately, the location of the Inform Extensions folder is different between the PC and the Mac, and it's also different between the web download version for the Mac and the Apple App Store version. The location of the Extension folders between the three different versions are as follows:

Windows: ~/Documents/Inform/Extensions
Mac Web Download: ~/Library/Inform/Extensions
Mac App Store: ~/Library/Containers/com.inform7.inform-compiler/Data/Library/Inform/Extensions

On my setup the Documents folder is synced between all the computers, Mac and Windows. But the ~/Library/Inform/Extensions only get synced between the Macs. I am also only using the latest Web Download version at this point (6M62).

Why not make the location of the Installed Extensions the same across all platforms and keep them in ~/Library/Inform/Extensions?
