So, I just started a second project and copied the content of a mockup from my old project to my new one. The content I copied had some symbols and custom icons in it. After pasting, the symbols appeared as “empty groups” and the custom icons appeared to “disappear” (They’re actually there, just completely blank - they didn’t even revert to the default “placeholder” appearance).
Next I tried importing one each of the missing symbols and icons in the hope that they would automatically be recognized and updated. No luck. Then I cleared the content, re-copied it from the original project and hoped that, since the assets were now in the project, they’d be recognized when pasted. Still no luck.
My expectation was that, by copying content from one project to another, if it has custom icons and symbols in it these items are copied/imported and used on paste. If an asset with the same name already exists the system should ask the user whether to skip the import, replace the existing one or keep both in the same way the application does when an asset file is being imported.
On a similar note, since symbol files no longer exist as separate entities (and if they continue to be handled that way), I’d really like to be able to use “import” to select a BMPR file and choose to do the following:
- import all assets
- import all image assets
- import all icons
- import all symbols
- import selected image assets
- import selected icons
- import selected symbols
