We hope you’ve had as busy and fun a holiday weekend as we have! We are in the throes of the last two days of school here, replete with awards ceremonies, special activities, class parties, and all the year end wrap-up hoopla. So today I’ve brought you one of my favorite quick tips from our old ScrapKitty Design blog
Oh admit it! You have your favorites… well maybe you love all your KIDS the same, but I KNOW you have favorite kits or folders that you go to all the time. And if you’re like me, you have to click and click to get to them sometimes. But did you know there’s a shortcut?? (this works in PSCS2/3 and PSE).
Lately I’ve been really obsessed with working more efficiently. Maybe the weather is so nice I don’t want to be stuck at the computer, or I’m just trying to cram too much into 24 hours… but I’m much more alert to things that speed up my workflow.
So here’s one way to speed things up: the FAVORITES folder in the OPEN dialog box! (The WHAT?? in WHERE??)
Go to File>Open and you will get a dialog box that looks like this:
Navigate to the folder you want to add to your favorites.
Click on the little folder icon with an asterisk in it at the top right (circled above).
You will get a little menu, click on Add Favorite.
TADA – there you go! Next time you want to go there, just go to File>Open (or hold CTRL and press the letter O) and click on that little file folder again. Below the menu choices, you will see your favorite files listed! Just click on the one you want.
if you decide you no longer need this folder in your favorites list, removing it is easy!
CTRL+O to get the Open dialog, Click on the favorites folder icon (folder with the asterisk in it) and click on Remove Favorite. You will get a drop down menu listing all your favorites.
Just click on the one you want to remove, and click Remove.
Just THINK of all the things you could put in there! Your templates file, your design tools, your layouts folder, the kit you’re currently enamored with!
OK, go get yourself all set up and…
