How do I export and import layers into a new workspace?

Post by TaylorSt95 » Sat Jan 04, 2020 9:23 pm

If I have a character with bones and everything already set up, is there a way to copy and paste the folder/layer group into a new work-space? I know there is a duplicate layers options, but that just adds a new layer within the same project. And control+C and control+v doesn't work either. I'm just not sure how to do that, or if that's even possible in the first place. Ha

Use File/Import/Moho object and from there you pick the desired file, layer or element.

You should also check this link for some more interesting stuff.

Use Copy Layer/Paste Layer at the parent group level. This is a different set of commands from Copy/Paste, and it can be used to copy the entire contents of a selected group layer.

If you have two projects open at the same time, you can use Copy Layer/Paste Layer to copy the group to the second project. (Note: this works fine in Moho 12.5. It should work in Moho 13 too but I need check something to be sure. Will follow-up if I find there is a problem here.)

Alternatively, you can use Import > General Import to import the contents of one project to a different project. When you do this, Moho presents a list of parent groups to choose from. This is useful when each character is in its own group so you can import them individually. (This makes the most sense when you've prepared a master project for each character or other asset.)
