External HD questions #BiaBFiles #MacUsers #BiaB2020

Peter Kelley
 

BIAB newbie here with a few questions about running BIAB from an external HD.

Background is that I bought Ultra+ 2019 on an external HD last year; took option 2 and installed the software (but not the files) on my MacBook's internal SSD; and played around with it but never wound up creating files

Now I have my shiny new update of Ultra+ 2020 on an external HD, Build 403, and am ready to do some quarantine projects. Questions:

- To install the 2020 update, do I need the old 2019 folder on my laptop for anything or can I delete it? (Which would save 17 GB on my laptop's SSD now down to 10% capacity.)

- Do I need last year's 2019 external HD for anything or can I wipe it? (I could reuse it for something else.)

- Can I still update from 2020 Build 403 to the current 2020 Build 412 if I use the external HD strategy? (The installer says no, you need the program to be where Mac OS runs from, meaning I'd have to go back to Option 2 and install the software on the laptop after all. If that is really the case, delete last year's folder or update over it?)

- That 2019 Bonus 49Pak -- do those I bought last year automatically convey to my 2020 external HD, or do I need to fish them out of last year's file structure somehow?

Thanks -- I did check the owner manual, search the official Forum, and email customer support over the weekend, but no answers yet from those sources.

Good for you David. Life is too hard to carry the burden of someone else’s enmity. I know I recently spread some false information and I regret it. However, response was measured, calm, and courteous. I so much respected that. Everybody makes mistakes,, and I did not read the initial statement as carefully as I should. But, nobody held my feet to the fire. There is hope for civilization.

I want to thank everyone. Doing a search in bb folder for .jpg files helped. Also finally got the save dialogue after final ok but was looking for it before. Also copy to clip board can work. There is no save as pdf unfortunately but I'm all good for now.

Hello,

How about doing a search for one of the titles you saved?  That should give you the name of the folder it is in and the path to that folder.

Most of the programs will pop up a dialog and ask you where you want to put it.  But if they don't, check in your default folder where things go that you don't specify.  Often that's a My Documents folder or just Documents.

Arthur ...

When you click on OK (to save), BB opens a file save dialog. Click in the Save file box, at the top, this will open a complete file explorer to navigate where you want the .JPG file to be saved.

Indeed but I don't think it this version has the option, but it does let you choose high,medium or low quality. Of course I would use high quality. It was always good enough for printing sheet music. I just can't find the save to folder.
