Hi to all, i´ve been working eventually on a macbook pro with Mountain Lion ( os X 10.8.2 ) and Aperture 3.4.2. I´ve made a project wich i ´ve exported " as new library" in order to import this project in the imac i usually work. In this imac i have Snow Leopard 10.5.8 and Aperture 3.0.3.


The problem is that when i try to Import Lybrary/ project nothing happens. No dialogue box to choose " mergue /add lybraries ".


I think the difference in OS and Aperture Version is the problem, because i´m trying to import a library from a newer version into a library of older version. Is it right? Any Suggestion?

Greetings froms Spain and thanks in advance


iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Probably it can't merge in libraries in the older format.


    I'd suggest opening the older library in Aperture 3.4.2 and letting it update it.  Then once you've done that, re-open your "main" library and try re-importing the old library.


    Do be aware once the library has been "updated" that your old machine on Snow Leopard (that's 10.6.8 BTW; 10.5.8 would be "Leopard") won't be able to open it.  If you need to be able to do that you should duplicate it before upgrading it.
