You can reuse drawings from other panels throughout your storyboard. You can also modify drawing objects and transformations after they have been copied to a new layer, instead of redrawing similar objects.
When you copy a layer, it is placed on the Clipboard, so you can paste it in many different locations if needed.
- Click the tab of the layer you want to copy. Hold down [Ctrl] (Windows) or [⌘] (Mac OS X) and select additional layers if needed.
- Drag the selected layer to the layer section of the destination panel. Drop the layers at a specific position to place it in the desired layer order.
When you copy a layer, it retains its original layer name in the new panel. If a layer with the same name already exists, then you will be prompted to give it a new name or overwrite the existing layer.
For example, if layer A is copied to a panel, where a layer A already exists, the copied layer will be named A_1 by default. If it is copied into the panel a second time, the new layer will be named A_2.
- Select the layer you want to copy. Hold down [Ctrl] (Windows) or [⌘] (Mac OS X) and select additional layers if needed.
- Do one of the following:
|‣||Select Layer > Copy Layers. Select the destination panel, and from the top menu, select Layer > Paste Layers.|
|‣||Right-click the layer tab and select Copy Selected Layers. Select the destination panel, right-click the layer tab and select Paste Layer.|
