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 may prompt you to save them on the Desktop rather than in the original Project folder.

This happens because there are a number of locations in the Live browser that are treated as read-only locations:

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

Thus, Live sets opened from read only locations can't be saved back to their original Projects. Instead, Live 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.

To fix the issue, you need to save these sets to a different location. Usually, the Desktop is suggested by default. But you can choose to save it wherever you wish.
