Hi there,


 


I post this here, but it may be of general interest.


 


I need to explain to a DAZ novice user a super simple way on how to install DAZ content on a MAC. I have already explained how to use the Content Library Manager to find the active libraries, and that data and Runtime folders of the zip and of the active MyLibrary need to be merged. I have also pointed out that on a Mac you need to use the Command key to merge folders, or use the ditto command.


 


But we always finish with this situation:


 


MyLibrary/data/data/myproductfolders



instead of:



MyLibrary/data/myproductfolders


 


I have posted images but obviously I'm not clear enough. Please help! Have any suggestion of the very simplest way to expain a clean installation on a Mac?

I am a Mac User and this is my method of manually adding content to DAZ


1. Locate your "My Library" folder and COPY the unarchived contents of your product by dragging and dropping whilst holding down the "alt" button.



2. A dialogue will appear:



DO NOT PRESS RETURN OR CLICK ON "REPLACE"
This is very, very important – if you do it will delete everything you have in any matching folders.


Instead click on "Apply to All" and then (carefully) click on "MERGE":



You may need to refresh your content library (alt-click on "My Library" and select "refresh" from the context menu) or restart Daz to see you new items.


 


GOOD LUCK!
