Hi. I have some projects on a Macbook Air that I want to transfer to my iMac. I have done this several times before by exporting as a library and importing the exported library. However, my latest attempts (on a new iMac) has caused problems.

The issue is that it doesn't merge the imported library into the main library, but rather it creates a separate library, which I can switch to ... but then I can't see the main Aperture library. What I want is one consolidated library.

It must be a setting somewhere because when I try the same but in reverse (ie exporting from the iMac and importing to the Macbook Air), it all works tickety-boo.

Any ideas?

Aperture 3, iOS 6.0.2
