No, make a folder called "LiveCode" or "My LC Stuff" or "Craig's stuff" 
and put *that* into Documents. The LiveCode folder will also contain two 
other folders eventually (Externals and Resources) which you'll probably 
need later at some point. You could create those inside of "LiveCode" 
now too if you want to be prepared.

Now point preferences to "LiveCode" (or "Craig's stuff" or whatever you 
named it.)

Right, but Plugins has to be inside a containing folder.

You only need to set this up once, then all future releases will find 
it. The advantage of naming it "LiveCode" instead of "Craig's stuff" is 
that "LiveCode" is searched for in Documents by default and you don't 
need to set prefs at all if you do that.
