This information is for users of Memory Manager and/or StoryBook Creator who wish to start using Panstoria’s Historian and/or Artisan programs instead. If your current programs are working, there is no necessity to change immediately. However when you are ready to make the transition these are the steps to follow:
Memory Manager to Historian
If you do not own Historian, here is the LINK to purchase it.
When you open Historian you’ll see that it looks very similar to Memory Manager, so you will be very comfortable and be able to easily find your way around.
To open an existing Memory Manager Memory vault, simply click Open another vault from the Home Ribbon on the Welcome page. Browse to the location of your MM Vault. Click once to select the vault and click “Select Folder”.
Your Memory vault will open, and will look the same as it did in MM. All your sorting – categories, tags, star ratings, ‘Tell the Story’ etc will be intact.
To find out where your memory vault is, open Memory Manager. On the welcome screen, the file location of your memory vault will be visible at the top left of the screen, just under the tabs.
- Historian will open Memory vaults from MM2 or MM3, you do not need to upgrade to MM4 first. However you will notice a number of improvements and changes in Historian, if you have been using MM2 or 3. You might like to watch these two videos: “Open the Door to Memory Manager 4.0 – Segment 1 and Segment 2
- Since Historian and MM4 are so similar, all the training in MM4 on www.pixels2Pages.net also applies to Historian. Here is a LINK to the Snap2Share section of the website, which covers Memory Manager and Historian training.
StoryBook Creator to Artisan
If you do not own Artisan yet, here is the LINK to purchase it.
When you open Artisan you’ll see that it looks very similar to StoryBook Creator 4.0, so you will be very comfortable and be able to easily find your way around.
To create a new Artisan project, simply follow the steps as you would have in SBC4.
