Changing a Library Scanner

The Scanner a Library uses can be changed when it is first created, or when editing it. Note that some library types such as Photo libraries only have one scanner so there will not be a dropdown to change it.

To change the Scanner:


Change the Scanner when creating a Library

  • Add a new Library as previously described
  • Before choosing Add Library, click Advanced in the sidebar

  • Finish configuring the Library
