Sets open as "Untitled"

  • Live Versions: 9-10
  • Operating System: All

In certain circumstances, Live might open sets as "Untitled". When trying to save these sets, Live will prompt you to save them on the Desktop rather than in the original Project folder.

The reason behind this is that there are a number of locations in the Live 9 browser that are treated as read-only locations. For example, in order to preserve the Live 8 Library as usable for Live 8, it will only be linked in Live 9 and its contents cannot be modified.

Thus, Live sets opened from such locations can't be saved back to their original Projects. Instead, Live 9 will treat them as if they haven't been saved yet and show you a location prompt when you want to save the next time.

Usually, the Desktop is suggested by default. But you can choose to save it wherever you wish.

Please do not save, copy or move projects to any of the following locations:

  • Live 8 Library
  • Any previous Live Library (that has been added to Places)
  • Installation folder for Factory Packs
  • Core Library
