    Default Renaming Album?

    Is there a way to rename/change the names of your albums? I created a new album and then imported the pages from the original album. Then deleted the original album. This worked, but was really a lot of work. Any simpler instructions?

    Hi, have you tried Save As? That's how I do it. In fact, if I'm working on a scrapbook and I want it up at the top every time I open Max, I give it a name like 123 or AAA and then when its done, Save As to a more meaningful name.

    haha. There may be a 'correct way to do it, but meantime this works fine. Enjoy your scrapping. :-)

    Hi everyone!

    In fact there are 2 ways for renaming an album.

    1. The Save As option which is definitively a good one. But yes, it will create a copy of the album.


    2. The second option...

    Go in this directory...
    C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\Scrapbook MAX! 2.0\Projects\
    Your albums are stored within this folder (Projects).
    For each album you have a folder and multiple files within.

    Let's take an example...
    I have an album named A Taste of Summer that I want to rename Summer 2013
    C:\Users\Sandrine\Documents\Scrapbook MAX! 2.0\Projects\A Taste of Summer
    I make a right click on this folder (A Taste of Summer) and I select the rename option. I type: Summer 2013
    So now I will have:
    C:\Users\Sandrine\Documents\Scrapbook MAX! 2.0\Projects\Summer 2013

    In this folder I will also have to rename the .sbm file: A Taste of Summer.sbm
    I make a right click on this file and I select the rename option. I type: Summer 2013.sbm

    Now when I launch Scrapbook MAX and I select Open a Saved Scrapbook, I can find Summer 2013 instead of A Taste of Summer.

    That's all.

    Is it helpful?
