how to select install location on a mac?
I just downloaded unreal engine, but it was just the launcher. How can I choose the install location for the engine? I don't have enough space (6GB) on my boot SSD.

There's still some internal discussion about making this a Launcher feature. There is a workaround you can use, however, that uses a Symlink. This method requires moving the /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine folder to the external drive and creating a symbolic link to the new location in the old folder. If you want to try it this way, these are the steps you can take:
Essentially what this does is create a shortcut in the old location (/Users/Shared/UnrealEngine) and redirects everything to the new location that you specified. When the Launcher attempts to copy/install engine files to /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine, they will be re-directed to that new location as well.

You'll probably want to move the installer for the Launcher over to whatever drive you want to use the engine on. Once you install the Launcher, you'll use the Launcher to install the engine. Currently, the Launcher installs to the same location and you can't choose another harddrive.
