My YACReader library is on an external drive, which I have just renamed. YACReaderLibrary is no longer able to find my library when I launch it.

Is there some way to update YACReaderLibrary’s configuration so that it can find the library at its new location? Will this work, or does the library itself store full paths that will no longer be correct?

Is there some other recommended way to move a library to a new location? E.g. are we supposed to Export Comics Info from the original library location and then create a brand new library at the new location to Import Comics Info into?

Just use the add library button in the left side bar. If you don't have any library use the buttons in the "No libraries" screen you see.

Thanks for the reply!

Do I understand correctly that if you add a library and YACReaderLibrary finds an existing library file in the directory that you add, it will restore the existing library with all its data intact?

(I don’t want to add the new path as a new library if that will cause all my previous library data to be overwritten with a new, blank library.)

That's correct. If you try to create a library in a folder containing other library YACReaderLibrary will open the existing one.
