Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding the library in Mac OS X, part of Maya Tips and Tricks.
…My users need to manage their preferences on a regular basis.…On the Mac OS X, the preferences are stored…in the library folder in the current user's home directory.…However with recent versions of the…operating system the library has been hidden.…And that's to protect naive users from themselves.…However, if you're a Maya user, then you're far from…naive and you need to have control over your computer.…Let's take a look…at how to get access to the library.…If you go to the Finder menu and choose…Go and Home, that takes you to your home directory.…
And it used to be that the library was displayed here, but now it's been hidden.…You can temporarily get access to the library by going back up in…to that Go menu and holding down option and you'll see library up here.…I release the option key, it disappears, I hold it down, it appears.…I just…click on that and it takes me to the library.…You'll need to go in to the My App Preferences that's found in Preference.…That's where all applications preferences are stored.…
