[SOLVED] How to add a library (Simlab9Mtl.mlb) in Lite

Postby thegurumonkey » Thu Aug 30, 2018 1:20 am

I'm a newb, and just downloaded Simlab9Mtl.mlb (about 1gig) but not idea how to add it to simlab now it's finally downloaded. Can i just drop it in a folder, or direct simalb to it in a menu somewhere. I tried the 'Manage Library' but it didn't have an import button (I'm still checking out lite version).
Any pointers?
Thanks loads

Thanks so much for your response.

However I tried that originally, but I don't get shown the left half of the 'Manage Material Libraries' pop-up.
I only get the right half labelled 'Groups' and not the left half labelled 'Libraries', within which the 'import' button should reside.

I had assumed that importing libraries wasn't available in Lite therefore, but watching the video of Lite features suggests otherwise, as does your response.

Any idea how I get the left half of the Manage Material Libraries pop-up, shown in this pic from the link you sent previously:

or is there maybe a more 'manual' way to add the library, like moving it to a certain folder and restarting Simlab possibly?

Thanks again! Muchos appreciatos!

If you follow step by step the tutorial above, you will have exactly the result shown :)

Just be patient at the step ...it's more minutes than seconds following sections! :)
Wait for the uploading process (few seconds).
The new library name will appear.
Click “OK“.

As you can see absolutly no problem with the Lite version!
(the Basic MLT Ceramics Pattern has only one pattern!
here the new MLT a little more! :)

well the left half of the menu just magically appeared this time, so it worked as per the tutorial
I wonder what happened last time(s)... Another win for the 'turn it off and on again' theory!

Thanks for your time,
Mike
