up till now... the new 1.5 version.... there was no option at all to store your pictures anywhere else but in the Aperture Library folder.
But the option not to use Vaults was there from the beginning.
Yes that is correct but why would you not want to use the Vault feature? It is one of the best things about the app, that and using Apertures Library.
I wasn't saying that the Vault and Library were the same thing. My comment about a million files all over my HDs was because I would not be sure if had that versionof the file saved somewhere else and I would save it yet again to make sure. I understand what the Aperture Library and the Vault are. The Library is the best because I know where all of my files are but the Vault also keeps me from having to many copies of the same file because I USE IT and therefore I don't end up saving a bunch of copies because I know I'm good with the Vaults backed up to external HDs.
I can see your confusion from my other post though.
