Setting the Location of Global Library

By default, when you install Toon Boom Studio, a main library folder is created. This library is called Global Library. You can store any kind of artwork as a template in this folder and access it from any of your projects.

By default, the Global Library is installed in:

Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\userName\My Documents\Toon Boom Studio - Global Library 8.0
Mac OS X: /users/userName/Documents/Toon Boom Studio 8.1

If you prefer to place the Global Library in another location, you can change it though the Preferences panel.

To set the Global Library's location:

1. From the top menu, select Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Studio > Preferences (Mac OS X).

The Preferences panel opens.

2. Select the General tab.
3. Beside the Global Library field, click Browse.
4. Browse for the Global Library's new location.
5. Click OK/Choose to close the Browse window.
6. Click OK to close the Preferences panel.
