Hi All,

I'd like to import my customized skin file to all my projects. There is an option in RH2019 in the Skins folder for import, but this is scanning for *.skz or *.slz file endings only. However, the ending of my skin file seems to be *.skn

Will it be possible to simply copy all files from the skin-folder of one project to another?

Best regards
Karin

I deleted my earlier reply. Whilst you can copy from Publish > Skins the correct method is to right click or use the menu with focus on your customised skin. There you will see an export option that will create the file you need to import.

Thank you Peter! I hadn't found that option. Works perfectly.

Is this for a merge or a number of standalone projects?

I haven't yet tested it but if it is a merge, the theory in 2019 is you don't need to set them up in the child projects. To generate those you need just one skin for of the type used in the parent, frameless or responsive. It's supposed not to need the same customisation or even be the same skin, just the same type.

I will be trying it in the next day or two.

It is for a number of standalone projects currently. However, it sure is interesting how it actually works for merged projects as well.
