New Library Downloads


Recommended Posts

I know how to update my library, and I know how to download new library items.  What I find cumbersome is trying to see if there are new libraries to download that I don't have.  Is it possible to do an update which includes adding new libraries I don't have?  Otherwise, it is extremely time consuming to go through each one and check it against what I do have.  Even if there was an excel list of all current CA libraries, that would be better than nothing.  If I am missing something, I'd love to know! Thanks.

You're not missing anything, but there are some things you can do to speed up your process probably.  For example:

You can create these excel lists fairly easily on your own.  Here's a quick video...

I've thought this many many times.  Appreciate the tips for helping speed the process too guys, but I really think this is worthy of a suggestion.  It would be nice if a full list of available libraries popped up which had check boxes we could select and easily see what we've already selected.

How did you come up with your list?

 

Same way as you suggested, didn't think I needed to repeat the process ?  but maybe should note it was done in Excel >PDF

I like that idea Mark , not sure if implementable but would be a nice feature people have wanted for years , at the moment it doesn't even check to see if the library is already installed so you can end up with duplicates.

Here is what I do that is simple to do...  I check the like box for each library I download... then I can tell at a glance which ones I already have downloaded when looking to see what is new.
