I'm so excited to be using Artisan 6!

But I've found that I have bunches of questions, and you probably do, too.

Here are a few tips I've found so far.  Keep coming back because I'll add more as I have them.

Artisan 6

 

1.  Importing the 15 free Art Kits that come with your Artisan 6 purchase

I was so lost about this when I first purchased my Artisan 6 upgrade.  I thought somehow I had missed adding something to my cart.

But the awesome thing is, Artisan 6 makes content import WAY easier than it has ever been before.

Before you can import content, make sure you have activated Artisan 6.  All you need to activate is to enter your email address and password for your Forever account.  Then the software does the rest. 

Artisan 6 looks pretty similar to Artisan 5, so you don't need to worry about re-learning the software.  Everything you know if where you expect it to be.

Now, click on Manage Content to open your Content Manager.

Import Content - Step 1

Once you open the Content Manager, the one difference you will see is a blue Import Purchased Items button on the top right of the screen.  Go ahead and click that button.

Import Content - Step 2

Now, all you need to do is watch the pop-up boxes and accept.  It should default to adding the content to your Commercial Art Kits folder and for 99.9% of the people I know, that's the best place to put it.  That's where I put it.

The software will now do the rest.  It will download each art kit and install.  You don't need to enter or copy/backup/save any new activation codes.  Any time you purchase new content after activating Artisan 6, the only thing you will need to do is click the blue button and the software will search your Forever account for new purchases, download them and activate them for you. 

 

I hope this helps and made some sense!  Please let me know if I can help with anything.
