Library orginazation

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to better organize the library files? Example, it would be nice to be able to combine lighting types, like wall mounted in one place instead of having to search in the core libraries and then various bonus libraries.

You can organize your User Library as you wish. If there is an item in a CA or Manufacturer Library that you like, just copy/paste it into your User Library.

You can add them to your user Library (copy/paste or copy/paste shortcut) and organize them in folders there.  By using copy/paste shortcut you don't duplicate the item it's just a pointer to the original.  By using copy/paste you get a new item that can be edited in the Library.  Note that you can copy not just individual items but entire Folders.

Like many, I tend to use the program in its out of the box mode, and once I get used to using it that way, I don't tend to change easily.

But, we all know there is a bunch of time wasted doing simple things that could be done faster or automated.  Libraries are a big one.

I've been lazy in creating my own user library and then not organizing it until it gets to big and unwieldy.  The cut/paste and create

sub-directories has been very useful and would have been smart to do from the beginning.  Going back and organizing feel like doing

my taxes.  I really hate it.
