    I am running Logic Pro 9.1.7 on a MAC dual processor, 12-core 32gig of ram running OSX 10.7 Lion. I have created two project templates that when I double click on the header in Logic, i.e. "New Project" a window opens that has a left and right column. In the left column are project templates that come with Logic Pro 9, in the right column, it shows the two project tmeplates that I have created, but no longer wish to use. How can I eliminate/erase these two project templates that appear in the right column of the project template window?

    Just delete them in the Finder.
    Your templates live here:
    Your home folder/Library/Application Support/Logic/Project Templates

    In OS 10.7 your Home Library folder is hidden by default. However, you can get there by clicking on the Go menu (in the Finder) and holding the Option key - the Library folder will become available there.

    It's handy to create an alias to this folder and keep it somewhere. I have a folder of lots of aliases that direct me to the various folders used by Logic, like those for Sampler instruments, the Icons folder etc etc

    Will I be able to select just the two templates that I created and want to delete while leaving the "factory" ones supplied with the Logic install (left hand column of project selection window) alone? Also, how to I specifically (steps) create an alias to this folder, where should and how do I keep it. Sorry for the lack of knowledge, but I just got back into the music business and this new MAC running Logic 9.1 is a whole new ball game for me. I am being very cautious as I do not want to erase a critical element or erroneously create the wrong element (folders, files, programs, alias, etc.) that will totally mess up my MAC, its OS and all the music software I have installed? Again, you help is much appreciated.

    Oh yes. Your factory installation files are all in a similar folder in the main Library folder, All User-created files are in the path I mentioned above. So, just go to that folder, select the 2 files you don't want and trash them. (You may need to restart Logic for the changes to show)

    The easiest way to make an alias is to select whatever you want to make an alias of (eg a folder), hold the [Option] + [Command] keys and drag the folder anywhere you like. You'll see a little curved arrow appear on the copy you're dragging, which shows that it is an alias.
    Where to keep it...? Wherever you like and wherever it'll be useful to you
