How do I Duplicate a complete Layout

  • Hello Constructers!

    I select a layout, right click on it, then select DUPLICATE, it makes a clone of it, but a empty one.

    Then I try to select my assets and add them to that layout and it gives me the:

    "This layer is overridden by a global layer"

    What do I have to do in order to sussecfully duplicate a working layout?

    I have created a Layout from Sractch, and pasted the items, but... the layers are on zero, so I will have to create them.... its there a better way?

  • Well... I don't think there's a actual way to clone the entire layout, because if you want the exact same layout to be used... just use the same layout o-o right? I don't know.

    But of course, sometimes it's better to copy a few things from a layout to another and then change a few things instead of creating the hole layout all over again from zero.

    In this case I suggest you to read a little about layers: https://www.scirra.com/manual/85/layers

    You can set the layers with the assets you want to repeat to be global layers, and then make the changes of the layout in a new local layer.

    Also, if you want the layout to look exactly the same as the other, just let it be as a empty layout with the same global layers of the other one.

    There are quite a few ways to solve this, and it all depends on what you want to do.

    Sorry I can't help you more

  • right click on your layout in project bar--> duplicate--> rename the new layout---> it's the same with the same objects
