Tool Tips and Hide Lesson strip was two different things and settings in the previous version. And the Tab Groups setting is gone too now, so no way anymore to arrange tabs on top instead at the side?

Just curious about where the old data folder would reside within the DS4.5 file structure?

Directly underneath the folder specified as a content folder, e.g. My Library.

OK I this is weird. I am downloading 4.5   and of course reset my downloads for my PW shaders…... and Norton sees the PW shaders as a virus…  I am sure its a false positive but still

How big is the DAZ 4.5 file? It looks to be much bigger than the DAZ 4 file.

I already have 4.0.xx installed and lots of content in my library. When installing 4.5, do I say no to installing Content Management Service?  Is it a new version or will reinstalling it remove my entire library?

Install the Content Management Service if you are using it now.  It’s just the program to access your library;  installing it will not remove your library (at least not if you specify the same library location you had last time so it’s looking for it in the right place anyway.)

When prompted during installation, check “Customize DAZ Content Management Service Installation”.In the Content Management Service’s Install Directories window, change or verify the ” Database location” field is set to wherever you have your database currently.

DAZStudio_4.5.0.114_Win32.exe is about 129MB.

Thanks Sean smile That is a lot larger than DS 4 of course smile It would be nice if we could have something to tell us the size of the downloads before we started them downloading.

My download for DS4.5 went very quickly…so quick I thought that maybe it hadn’t download the full file but it just ran the install beautifully.

Turning off Tool tips does not get rid of the lesson bar.  (and I don’t really want to turn off tool tips anyway.  Sometimes it’s useful to remember exactly which Icon goes with which tool)

I know it’s supposed to be more new user friendly, but it’s kinda distracting to those of us who’ve been using DS for a while now.


Edit to add - I figured it out.

I had to go to Customize - Actions (Workspace) and move the Enable Lesson Strip to the Workspace Menu (I could probably have moved it to any Menu) and then turn it off.

What I would dearly love is a way to shut off the darned “Tips” tab or a way to drag it to the second position.  I don’t need that, I need the Info tab front and center.  Yea, it’s only one more click but it’s still annoying.  I’m not a newbie so my preference is to turn it off completely.
