Here is a tip on how to get your External Hard Drive (EHD) to always keep the same drive letter, no matter what sequence you put it into your computer.
Do you have "a lot" of digital art? Well, there is not a right or wrong answer. It is all perspective. 100 kits or 1,000 kits can be "a lot." When you have a lot of digital art, there comes a time when you need to manage that art. Nothing is truly stored in Artisan software. Artisan operates by looking at various windows folders on your computer. This tip will review several ways you can use Windows Explorer to manage your digital art.
For those of you in the market for a new computer, please have a look at this month's earlier tips and their accompanying webinar (links at the end of this post).

Today's tip is part of our ongoing Tip+Webinar series, Computer Basics for Artisan Users. This tip will discuss what some of those terms mean for you, especially when considering what kind of computer works best for Artisan users. While I will not be recommending any specific computers, you should have an idea what kinds of things to look for when computer shopping, and you should be able to talk knowledgeably with the salesperson. Remember, the salesperson doesn't have a clue what you need to run Artisan and Historian optimally, so you need to know what you are looking for!
This is the third glossary tip in our series on Computer Basics for Artisan Users. This month, we will be learning about computers and the terminology used to describe them and their components. Stay tuned for next week's tip + webinar, which will expand on these terms, breaking things down into what's important for Artisan users. Also, we will discuss what to look for in a computer you plan to use with Artisan and/or Historian.
If you're a digital art junkie (oops, I mean collector) like I am, you may find that your Commercial Art Kit folder is beginning to get LONG!! If you've been a digital scrapper for a long time (like over ten years), you may have a lot of digital art that is a bit dated or stale, or some that you've used so many times that you're ready for something fresh. Perhaps you once used pre-designed pages as your go-to, but now you start with Blueprints, templates, or blank pages and those PDP kits are sort of in the way. Or it could be that you have so much digital art that you and your computer are overwhelmed - you have a hard time finding your newer kits and your computer is struggling for space.
One of the most common complaints we hear about Artisan 5 is about those yellow warning triangles that have a nasty habit of appearing on pages under construction. In previous versions of Artisan, it was hard to know what a warning was for, but in Artisan 5, it's very easy to tell by simply hovering your mouse over the yellow triangle.
