    Why am I not getting the characters?
    Also, I downloaded the bonus characters, added them to the folder, they didnt show. I changed the capital .PNG's to .png's but still wont show.

    will show something like.jpg If you are a Windows user check for any DS_STORE files and delete them. Characters won't show because there are many files. See attachment.

    The folders will not show if the folders are empty, or if the graphics have CAP extensions. After you moved the graphics, did you close down TLC, then re-open it?

    Do I have to open TLC and then transfer the folder? What is a "CAP" extension? I only transferred the folder, nothing more.

    Do I have to remove the .DS_Store within the folders too? Do I have to change the .PNG to .png? I really don't know why they are not showing when I open TLC.

    I drop down the window and click on any of the two folders (characters with signs, characters without signs) but nothing happens when I choose them.

    You don not have to 'open' TLC to move your folder. Matter of fact, it's better if closed. You'd have to close then re-open anyway to get the folder to show.

    The .DS files are for MACs. If you are on a PC you can delete them.

    Yes, change ALL .PNG to .png That is what I meant by CAP extensions. And if TLC is open, then close it and re-open AFTER changing all the extensions.

    After checking all that, let us know if you still have a problem. We'll get it figured out. Program works like a champ so it's got to be something simple that we're just not seeing yet.

    I removed .DS, changed PNG to png and then opened the TLC and the characters are now there.
    Thank you so much for your help and support to both of you. :bravo:
