MyStudio PC - Additional Functions

Original Author(s): Lynn Leith

There are four additional functions in MyStudio PC which are described in this section. These functions may simplify some parts of the production process.

DAISY Import

This function allows you to import an existing DAISY project (DAISY 2.0 or DAISY 2.02) created with a different DAISY production tool into MyStudio PC. It is possible to import from hard disk or CD. Once the project is in MyStudio PC it can be edited. It is also possible to combine several existing projects to create one single project using this function.

1. Select "DAISY import..."(D) from the "Tool"(Alt + T) menu.
