Q: When I open one of the project files, I get an error message that says "Media Missing in LiveType File." What is causing this error?
A: The error could be caused by a change in LiveType media between version 1 and version 2. The exercise files were created with version 1 and Apple may not have included all the assets with the latest upgrade.
This particular error message means a background texture file is missing. The error can be fixed by opening the file in LiveType and replacing the existing background texture (on the lowest track) with a different texture from the Media Browser > Texture tab panel.
More importantly, the specific texture used is not important, except that the screen images won't match. The operation of the software is the same, regardless of which texture is used.
