Is it possible to consolidate swap sets (ie hands) from different profiles (Frontal, Left, Right)?  I’ve tried without any luck.   Am I missing something?

It sure is! Have you tried creating an empty swap set first, then dragging your layers onto it? I have a puppet with five views and a handful of props, some of them in swap sets, but I only have one trigger or swap set for each prop or set of props to be swapped. It can be a little confusing if you first try to select all the layers and either right-click ro drag them to the Triggers panel, but hopefully I'm understanding you correctly and creating the empty Swap Set first should do the trick.

Thanks David. I was trying to select/drag all layers.  Your layer by layer suggestion worked!

You're welcome! You can still select and drag all layers onto a trigger, you just have to manually create the Swap Set first. After creating the Set you can even select all the layers in the Puppet panel and add them directly to the Swap Set there.
