Library View

The Library view is used to create and manage templates, as well as the folders containing them.

The Preview window of the Library view lets you preview the contents of the selected template. Audio files cannot be previewed in the Preview window of the Library view.

The Library List is used to navigate through the different libraries and subfolders. You can also open, close and create new libraries from here.

The Library view has two default Library folders:

  • Global: This is an empty folder you can use to organize your templates. This library is automatically shared between different projects. You can organize this library folder using subfolders. When you save items in the Global library, it is saved by default to a location in your Documents folder on your machine.
  • Templates: This folder contains default templates provided with Storyboard Pro and is stored on your hard drive. The content of this Library is automatically shared between the different projects.
NOTE: To verify the path where files are being stored, hover your cursor over the folder to display the path

The templates contained in the selected Library list can be displayed on the right side of the Library view as thumbnails, in a list or as details.

In the Library view’s right side, right-click and select View > List, Thumbnails or Details.
