    YES..... I find this is a good way to work also.

    You have my intrest how do you work off your desktop folders and drag and drop into layouts? It sound like a faster way to work.

    OK.....
    Have SBM open full screen at the template you are working in.....

    At the same time have the folder open containing the embellishments you wish to 'drag' ~ this should cover say the left-side of your screen & sitting on top of SBM

    NOW ~ just drag from folder t SBM.

    Hope this is explained OK?????

    Bless everyone for their help. I'm 'encouraged' to know that I'm not the only one that is clueless sometimes.....lol. Okay, what is not clear, is the part about having SMB template at full screen and still being able to see an embellishment that is on my desktop. I can understand that if I can see the desktop, I can drag and drop it into a SBM layout. But on my computer the layout covers the entire screen. Okay, I need to go back and check all this....

    Back to add: okey doke, I see it! I just needed to move the screen to the side. Thick-headed Verleen, signing out...lol

    Hi Verleen. I do the drag and drop from the desktop too, but what I do is open SBM and just make it half the size, from the corners I shrink it, then on my desk top I have all my files and open them up, shrink to half size also, then drag and drop. Dont feel awkward we have ALL been through this and once you get the hang of it it will be a breeze!

    I like doing the drag and drop too. I just found out a few days ago that I can drag and drop from ACDSee. I have version 2.2 and just downloaded trial version 9. I may be purchasing full version 9, if I can figure out how to tag and organize my stuff in it. I have been reading help files and tutorials on it for 2 days now. The only thing I know for sure is that EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE has a different way to do it. Sigh.......
    I need to find one way and stick to it. My files are so unorganized I could scream and bang my head on my desk sometimes when I cant find something I know I have.
    If I had the time, I would love to wipe my hard drive clean and start all over again.
    One thing I have noticed is that ACDSee (both versions 2.2 and 9) are both faster the IE explorer for finding graphics.
