Author Topic: Library issue  (Read 1779 times)

Hi all,

Im having a amateur problem here. When I save out a .sbs file in to my Library directory I am unable to access it within Designer.

Any leads on what the issue may be?

Hey rocholl,

you need to tell the library to search a specific Folder (plus subfolders) to add the custom .sbs files.
In the attached image, you can see the setup (as example).

In the Projects-Tab in the Preferences, you need to add the Folder-Path to the Library. If you did that, you can add a new Filter to the Library inside of Designer.

Wes did a great video series for beginners in Substance Designer, explaining your question, too.
Here is the specific video from the Channel Playlist:

Best Regards

Hi Fabian thanks for the reply.

I have watched all the tutorials from back to front..they are great.

The issue I have however still prevails. The directory is set and appears to work for a material I put together earlier today. What isn't accessible is a mask generator I created. Is it possible that this has something to do with the outputs?

Maybe it's an issue with your filters?
The outputs are independent from what is shown in the library.

Hmm not that I can see :( tis very strange. 

There is an option called "Do not show in Library". Maybe it was not checked?

Anyway that's good if it's working :)
