The clipart library is great, but takes up a lot of my limited internal storage on my Mac. Is it possible to transfer that to my external hard drive?

Hi DunellenGuy,

Please follow these steps to move the clipart to a new loacation:

1. In Finder, open the folder containing the clipart:
/Library/Application Support/BeLight Software/
Copy the ClipArt folder to the new place.

2. Rename the original ClipArt folder to something like ClipArt-old.

3. Open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
Copy the following line (a space at the end is needed):
sudo ln -s
and paste into the Terminal window.

4. Drag and drop the ClipArt folder from the new location into the Terminal.

5. Copy this line:
/Library/Application Support/BeLight Software/ClipArt
and paste it into the Terminal.

At the moment, the command line in the Terminal must look like this (the first path can be different):
sudo ln -s /Volumes/Extra_Drive/ClipArt /Library/Application Support/BeLight Software/ClipArt

6. Hit the Return key. You'll be asked to input the administrator's password.

7. Open the program you are going to use with the clipart, for instance, Swift Publisher, and check if is still can access the extra clipart.

8. Remove ClipArt-old.
