I tried to import a skin that I had created for another project. After selecting the Import option, I browse to locate the skin but when I pressed Open, it opened to an empty folder and I couldn't continue with the Import.

Is Import the Skin the option I need to use the skin I created from another project?

What am I doing wrong?

Export the skin from the source project to a folder and then import it to the other project.

Hi Peter:

I tried what you suggested - creating a folder outside of the source project folder and trying to import in my new project.

As you can see from the attached screenshots, the new folder does have content when you view it from the Windows Explorer. However, when I try to import the skin using the Import option, I can't import the folder (only options are Open and Cancel). So, when I press Open to select a file, the folder is still empty.

Any suggestions?Empty folder when trying to Import Skin.pngNew folder for Skin.png

What I said was to Export it, not copy the folder containing the skin.

 

Right click the skin in the source project and use the Export option. That creates a file that you save. You then import that file.

I tried exporting like you suggested and when I pressed the Save button, nothing happened.

I tried exporting the file to different locations and still nothing happened when I pressed the Save button.

I just checked by exporting a skin and it created the SKZ file without any problem.

 

Where are you exporting the skin to? Is it a local drive? Any source control involved?

 

Create a new project locally and create as skin. Can you export that?
