Can't drag and drop into Library

I can't drag and drop elements into the Library panel in After Effects.

I can drag and drop everywhere else, no problem.

 

Any thoughts?

Thanks so much for your help... I figured out that I have to open the comp in Essential Graphics, then export it into the Library.  Did not realize that the templates wouldn't be available to access for other After Effects projects, only Premiere Pro (and possibly other) projects.

It was your link to the list of supported file types that led me to do this... so THANK-YOU!!!

I don't even have the + sign at the bottom of the Library panel so I can use that workaround...

 

What's up with that...?????

So... with no drag-and-drop capability, and no "+" sign on my Library panel, I have virtually NO WAY of using my Library.

Adobe...?  Are you there...?  Can you help me out...?????

Maybe try to move up the libraries panel to see the + icon at the bottom of the panel.

Or you can click on + create new library button

Thanks for trying...!

That worked as far as creating a new library... but still unable to add anything to it.

I have/can see the bottom field with the cloud, new bin, and trash icons. But no +.

Again... Thanks so much for trying...!

Which elements are you trying to drag into the Libraries panel? I tried a .glb file that worked for me. Check out the list of elements supported by the Libraries panel: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/supported-formats-creative-cloud-libraries.html

Let us know if it helps.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

Hmmm... That's very interesting.

I'm trying to add motion-graphic compositions that were created in After Effects.  I'm updating graphics that were already IN the library.  I deleted those so as not to confuse them with the new ones. But now I can't add the new ones.

But in reading the list in the link you just provided, it seems like After Effects comps aren't included... which is very weird.

My brain hurts.
