The Content Manager in SBC4.0 looks quite a bit different than it did in the 3.0 version. The ability to designate keywords for individual content items in Storybook Creator Plus 3.0 was one of the HUGE benefits to that version. It gave us the ability to look for content based on a characteristic, instead of just by what package it belonged to. I spent hours and hours going through content and assigning keywords that I believed I could use to later find these items. I know that many of you did that, too.
When I began using Storybook Creator Plus 4.0, I didn't look to verify if my keywords came across. However, a friend contacted me frantically wondering if the upgrade had wiped out all of the meticulous keywording that she had done. In an effort to help her out, I took a look and found that the keywords don't come across automatically, they have to be converted to 4.0. The good news is, it's a super easy process.
To convert your 3.0 keywords to the 4.0 version, simply
- Go to Manage content on the Welcome screen to view the Content Manager.
- Click on the File tab in the top left corner.
- Click on the Tag icon that says Convert keywords
Really, that's all it takes. Your keywords come across and are totally usable in the new version.
