    I have a lot of png's from earlier versions that I would like to have show up in the program at the top like the built in ones. Is it possible to add to the .db files so they show without having to bring them in from outside the program? Perhaps add my own .db file?

    Add a folder to the Logo Elements file with your .pngs in it then it will appear in the drop down menu.

    Hmm a similar problem myself here. I've just updated to 6.6 and now half of my libraries are not showing up on the drop down. They are 'physically there' in the folders, but seem to be being ignored by the program :( Help?

    Do you share your computer with another user? For example: you share your computer with a spouse and you both have your own log in and passwords.

    hmmmm....
    Hi Pete.

    After you installed the update to version 6.6 - do you still have version 6.0 installed?
    you should now have two icons (6.0 and 6.6).

    run v6.0 -- let me know if you can still see the logo templates and logo elements.

    Hey Marc I had already deleted the old 6.0 icon but found the 5.2 still in a folder - this one opens with all elements no problem - contemplating large mallet and my Dell at the moment and wondering which would win..

    Update still about a third of the elements missing from the drop down - I guess I will have to delete the lot including all old folders as I think it's the old version that is confusing things as they show up in there - just hope I can find 'em all :eek: Will let you know..

    TLC can not resize on its own.....it has to be manually triggered. Is it possible you are seeing a imported thumbnail.

    Hi
    I have copied the pbg files in the folder ( into documents/laughingbirds software) and I can have all my png files

    would be nice, as requested could a few years ago that TLC would support drag 'n drop from your desktop and / or folders on your computer. It 'always uncomfortable having to resort to command imports files
