projects have been "grouped" by the creator - you can
ungroup by right clicking and choosing the "arrange"
option - then "ungroup" in Versions 2.0 & 3.0 -
in Versions 4.0 and up the software will prompt you to ungroup
the items when you double click on the items grouped
Choose the version
of Creatacard you are downloading for:
- Download project and extract file(s) [if zipped] to the folder
of your choice (remember where you put it) and open from within
the software, (search your folders for where you saved it). Version
4.0 and up is more versatile in opening files then 3.0. The files
in the shared files section are a mix of zipped files and straight
files - no unzipping needed. You only need to unzip a file if
the extention is .zip, you can use a free utility like WinZip to unzip with.
For Version 2.0 / 3.0
(If you have
downloaded a file from the shared area that is not zipped
skip down past
this unzipping instruction) I used Drag n Zip to zip most of
the Creatacard project files.
a project, just click the one you want. You will be prompted
to save it to your hard drive.
Important- do not rename the file! Download
it with the file name I have given it. It will not work properly
if you rename it. This is what the file will look like once you
have downloaded it:
you saved it! I always download directly to my Desktop -so easy
to find. Click on the icon and you will be prompted to where
you want to save the extracted file. Here is what you will see:
download had 2 files, most only have 1)
The .ccf file
must be placed in the subdirectory "Data" folder from
where you have Creatacard installed on your hard drive. (Ex.
C:/CAC/Data) OR where ever you have your saved
projects at. When you installed CAC you had a choice on where
to install the program AND what folder you wanted
your saved projects saved to, as seen below.
cannot find where your CAC stores your .ccf files (saved projects):
First make sure
you have saved projects in Creatacard. From your windows Start
button choose Find, then Files or folders. Type in .ccf and click
find now. It will then locate where your files are located.
Once you have
placed the .ccf file in the proper folder, you will find the
file under "saved work" from the Creatacard main screen.
You can also
extract your files to a floppy disk and chose to open from "diskette"
(usually your A:\ drive) instead of from your hard drive.
