Usually the pop-up menu from r-clicking a library has a Rename option. This is not the case for PROJECTS in my TS 6. I tried changing the project name in Windows Explorer, but TS didn't accept that. How can I change my Project's name?


Thanks,

Janet

hi Janet..just an idea..have you tried creating a new project with the right name, done with your project loaded..I don't use the feature because it makes copies of too many files, but when I tried creating a new one it seemed to be exactly what was there already, so couldn't you do that..make sure it's got every thing the other project had, then delete the badly named one ..

Hi Gordon,


It's a little complicated.....


In my main, default, TS6, I had a separate library for each different piece of jewelry along with all the other libraries for other things. There were getting to be too many libraries there, so I thought I'd take all the jewelry libraries and put them together in a Jewelry project folder. I made the new folder in Windows Expl. and then dragged all the jewelry libraries from D\TS6\Library to the new folder D\TS6\Projects\Jewelry. But then I couldn't load it because it didn't have a .tsp file. So I created a new project from within Ts but had to call it Jewelry 1 because TS said I already had a project called Jewelry (even though it didn't appear in the list of libraries I could load or import). I then dragged all the relevant libraries from Jewelry (which didn't have a .tsp file) to Jewelry 1 (which did have a .tsp file) using Windows Explorer. After I confirmed that everything worked in Jewelry 1, I deleted the Jewelry projects folder using Windows Exp. So I am left with what I wanted (all my jewelry libraries together and separate from other libraries in a project called Jewelry), but I would prefer to remove the 1 from the project name.......


I wonder if I could have just dragged the .tsp file made within TS (Jewelry 1) to the old projects folder (Jewelry) I had made in Windows Explorer, and change it's name to Jewelry.... I assumed you couldn't do that.....


How do you order your libraries without using Projects? For instance, don't you sometimes have a few object libraries all from the same scene? Wouldn't it be easier to have them all together instead of having to scroll through a million libraries alphabetically ordered?

hi Janet..did you know you can move a library..just move it, folder and all or copy it ..I have some on cd..or other drives..but it seems you can't "browse" in ts6.0 but you can in ts6.6..you would have to file/ load/ library..just make sure the .obl file is in the folder

Moving the library wasn't the problem. The problem was getting a .tsp file for the project so you could either load it by r-clicking in the Projects window or import it by browsing......You do browse in TS6 to import....

hi Janet..yes I understood your issue, and that you can browse for projects in ts6..with "browse" in ts6.6 [and ts7 model side] you can load material libraries, objects, scenes from anywhere..in my image it shows truespace5 which I don't have installed any more, it's just a folder name truespace5 on D: with the libraries in it..the image is actually my [messy] ts7 object library system ..it's identical to the ts6.6 one..they changed how they worked after ts6..much easier..

that is why I don't use the project library system..Gord :cool:
