Are you still using CM’s Memory Manager and/or a version of Storybook Creator?
Panstoria (the company that created this software for CM) is now Forever and if you're still using Storybook Creator and/or Memory Manager you're going to want to make the switch to Artisan and/or Historian. While these "new' programs (created by Panstoria) are pretty much the same as SBC, SBC+ &/or MM, the CM versions of these programs are no longer supported. The time will come, sooner or later, when you won't be able to use SBC and/or MM. Also, after the end of January you will no longer be able to print directly from Storybook. To continue to use these programs you’ll need to switch to Artisan (SBC+) and Historian (MM). Forever/Panstoria has a fantastic sale going on right now - 30% off sitewide (including software) with the promo code SAVE30. I'm sad to say my days as an affiliate with Panstoria are coming to an end. I still love these programs, and will continue to use them, but I have no interest in the "forever" storage options. Unfortunately, you can't be an affiliate for one without the other - and it costs a pretty penny to join Forever, either as a customer or an affiliate. So, for now you can visit Panstoria/Forever via my affiliate link (and thank you for your support!). NOTE: DO NOT upgrade to Artisan 5 if you don't have a 64 bit version of Windows! You can upgrade to Artisan 4 if you have a 32 bit version.

I am happy to report that I had no issues switching to Artisan and Historian. I switched over as soon as these programs were available. My content came over seamlessly with the upgrade to Artisan 5 and Historian works with your existing Memory Vaults. The switch was very painless.
Artisan 5 has a lot of nice updates. Some of my favorites include:
- Two-page editing is a breeze!
- Alignment Guides – super easy to keep things lined up
- Strokes – these are photo & shape borders in different patterns
- Font manager – the ability to sort fonts on your computer into categories!
