Chapter 20. Libraries > To put an item in a library:

To put an item in a library:

1.
Create a new library or open an existing library.

2.
Choose the Item tool (or hold down Cmd/Ctrl with the Content tool).

Auto library save

A library is saved each time an item is added to it if the Auto Library Save option is checked in Edit > Preferences > Preferences > Application–Save. With this option unchecked, a library is saved only when it's closed or when you quit/exit the application. With this option checked, you may notice a slight processing delay each time an item is added to or deleted from a library.


3.
Drag any item, group, or multiple-item selection into the library. When the pointer is over the library, you will see an eyeglasses icon . A thumbnail of the item will appear in the library; the original item will stay on your page. A multiple-item selection will be stored as one entry.

Figure 1. Drag an item into a library with the Item tool.


Figure 2. The pointer turns into an eyeglasses icon as the item is dragged into the library. The inward-facing arrowheads point to where the item will be placed.


Figure 3. The item is automatically duplicated, and the original is left intact in the document. To move an item to a different spot in a library, just drag it.


TIP

An item can be dragged from one library to another.
