  2. Select the source in the left sidebar.
  3. Drag already installed files from Finder, dropping them in the main section of the Composer window.

You May Modify Permissions

If, for example, you need to change the file owner from a user to root. Any changes are automatically saved in the source file collection.

  1. Launch Composer (in your Casper Suite folder) and enter credentials for an administrative account on your Mac.
  2. Select the source in the left sidebar.
  3. In the main section of the Composer window, select the item whose permissions you need to change.
