I am back using Aperture now that the update to 3.5 has solved a nagging problem of occasionally not recogniging PSD files. However...


The update created a new Library and most of my files are in the previous version Library. I know I can switch back and forth in File>Library>Other, but can I merge the two so all the files are in the same place?



Aperture 3, OS X Mavericks (10.9)

    That is unusual. The update should have opened your previous Aperture library just fine. Is your previous Aperture library on an external volume? And is that volume not formatted for mac?


    However, you should be able to import your previous Aperture library into your current Aperture library or vice versa.

    See the manual page:  Working with Library Files (the paragraph on  Merging Libraries)

    To import one library into another you use the command File->Import->Library…


    So in your case you would open one of the libraries and then use the above command to import the other library.
