When purchasing new Digital Art Kits from Forever, we want to get it installed into our software and be able to find it and use it right away.
The download is in the form of a file called an .artkit file, which is an automatic Art Kit Installer. All you have to do is download it, and then click on it and it automatically installs your Art Kit for you. It couldn’t be easier! The only problem is that the program chooses the location that it installs the art kit to, and that might not be where you wanted it. With each upgrade to the software the default location has changed, so you might end up with content in a number of folders on your computer. If you have chosen a different location, such as an external hard drive to store your art kits, you need a way to tell Artisan where to install your Art Kits. Fortunately, that’s a very easy thing to do
1. Open Content Manager in Artisan.
2. Right-click over the folder you have chosen for your Art Kits, or click the drop-down arrow. You will see the following options:
3. Choose “Make default location for imported kits”.
You won’t see anything happen, but if you click the arrow again, you will notice that option is grayed out. That’s how you can tell what your current default location is. Next time you click on that Art Kit Installer file, it will automatically install itself right where you want it.
Click HERE if you have content scattered all over the computer that you would like to reorganize.
