    I had V5 installed which I had previously purchased. I then bought CIC which I installed together with V5 of TLC, which overwrote my previous installation. Now when I open TLC, all my previous templates are gone!

    How can I get them back?

    Which version are you using (PC or Mac) . Are you looking for templates you made and saved ? What appears in the dropdown menu when you open TLC?

    Hi PurpleMoon.

    Welcome to the forum.

    When you install The Logo Creator, it'll do one of two things.
    It will install into a new folder if you have a previous copy of TLC installed (you want to install version 5.0 but already have version 4.0 for example), or, it'll merge your new logo sets (if both are version 5.0)

    ... it won't (it can't) delete or replace your old sets.

    What may have happened is that the new v5.0 version installed into a new folder ... but the shortcut icon created on your desktop is only pointing to the new set.

    Check your Program Files folder. Check to see if you have two versions of The Logo Creator installed. If so, I can tell you how to merge the two.

    aah yes it's created a whole new folder, which means I'll have to merge them. Pls let me know how I can do this, thanks Marc!

    Good to hear this was in fact the case :)

    I assume you've got the older version 4.0 and the newer version 5.0?
    If so:

    open up the v4 folder.
    open up the v5 folder.

    Inside each, you'll see the "Logo Libraries" folder.

    move the contents (not the full folder) from the v4 Logo Libraries to the v5 Logo Libraries folder.

    Let me know if this does it for you.

    i've actually got 2 version 5's and one version 4...

    so I can take from the one version 5(i) and version 4 and move to the other version 5(ii)?
