Re Elements 13.
When I import Pictures into the Organizer these are arranged in libraryes called yyyy mm dd, and this Works fine.
In earlier versions I coud rename these folder to yyyy mm dd - "a name". I could do this with many libraryes.
In the new version 13 this can only be done with the 1st lib.
Anyone have a solution????

Which earlier version?
As far as I know, such advanced renaming scheme has only been available for files, not folders?

In ver.11, ver.9 and ver6, I always had the opportunity to do that.
When I import mu picture i get libraries that look like this:

2015 01 01
2015 01 02
2015 01 03

and so on!

After the import I did right click on the 1st. library, and choose "rename"

I then renamed like this:

2015 01 01 - Holiday in Paris
2015 01 02 - Holiday in Paris
2015 01 03 - Holiday in Paris

and so on!

I can't do this in version 13 of Elements.

Sorry, I can't do that in my older versions (12,11,10 and 6) either.

After importing you must do the renaming i Elements.
Elements will then move the pictures to a library on your HDU with the new name - subsequent the old library will be deleted.
I have not mentioned that I run Elements on a WIN7 PC.
