Save as Package or Folder isn't enough

    The file structure of my project is already well laid out.

    But when I load Logic 9 songs into X it asks me to 'Save As':

    Folder = full complement of ancillary folders that I don't need or
    Package = a single song icon with a full complement of ancillary folders as a hidden file family that I don't need.

    Is there an option to simply save the new song as I wish and which inherits all the existing internal filepaths?

    Have you tried excluding the assets when you are doing your Save As?

    I would strongly advise you do NOT do that. Users have reported that after doing this they get a "regions changed in lenght" message and this messes up the anchors of the audio. This probably happens because LX stores some new metadata in the audiofiles.

    Eli: yes - the 'Save as' dialog defaults to exclusion. Perhaps that's inherited from my Logic 9?

    I've tried saving in different formats and think I've got it under control now

    Kim: I've been doing it for years in previous versions and so far haven't found any problems. This project is one song in 4 parts, so although I have 4 projects on the go, they all share the same audio folder.

    I shall look out for anomalies now you've mentioned them, & would like to know more

    It's a problem with L9 and LX projects using the same source audiofiles. Once the anchors are screwed up there is no going back. It is a rare problem but it exists.

    ah, OK. I am producing only in X, occasionally opening a limited L9 version to check region placements.

    thanks for the warning
