Copy paste stuff around

Mon Jul 12, 2021 7:57 am

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if there is a way to copy stuff from one project to another without having to close/open between projects all the time.
I looked up how to open multiple instances of Magic, but it does not allow me to copy paste stuff from one window to another.
Is there a practical, time-saving way to do this? The way I'm doing now (which probably is not the right one) seems like a grotesque time wasting effort.

Thank you very much!

Select all the scenes/folder you want to copy then export to a new project? Not much time wasted, certainly not a grotesque amount.

As Sadler suggested, it’s best to use the Save Scene To Project and Import Project menu options because they will preserve all the dependencies, including input sources, scenes for scene modules, etc. Otherwise you’ll lose those and wonder why your scene is broken.
