Dumb question

Never done this before, saved a sprite to a project for use in other projects but could not transfer it from the project to another project - how do you do this?

    Through the documents folder rather than the specific project asset folder? It will be accessible by all projects-not sure if this is what you mean?

    Managed to do this by saving to Documents and then loading in through Project and saving in Project. Can't do it direct by loading from one project and saving within new one.

    Can we save Sprites in project to photos?

    Could use the Project dialogue then from there.

    @West - thanks for the reply. See above for use of Documents folder, just trying to find out if I was missing something.

    @Bri_G If you don’t want to save them in the Documents folder, try saving them in global data. They’ll be available to all projects.

    @dave1707 - thanks for that, learn something new every day. I thought global data was just for variable data, text etc. Didn’t know you could save images there.

    Is there any way that you can see global data as files? Never looked for it.

    @Bri_G There’s only readGlobalData, saveGlobalData, and listGlobalData. You can use listGlobalData to display the names of everything in global data. If you were able to save images in ProjectData, they should work with global data.

    P.S. I think you’re correct about variable data, text, etc. Tried to save an image in global data and got an error. I guess I was thinking about saveImage, but that’s only to Documents or Dropbox folders.
