By opening two Storyboard Pro projects at the same time, you can copy and paste panels between projects, allowing you to reuse your assets more efficiently. To do this, you can simply launch two instances of Storyboard Pro, open the source project in one instance, the destination project in the other instance, and copy and paste between both instances.
NOTE: On Windows, you can launch two instances of Storyboard Pro by launching it from the desktop or Start menu twice. On Mac OS, you must launch Storyboard Pro from the Finder application in order to be able to launch two instances of it. If you attempt to launch Storyboard Pro from the dock twice, it will only launch it once.
How to launch two instances of Storyboard Pro
- Do the following twice:
- On Windows: Open the Start menu, then select All Programs > Toon Boom Storyboard Pro > Storyboard Pro.
- On Mac OS: Open Finder, then go to Applications > Toon Boom Storyboard Pro > Storyboard Pro.
How to copy and paste panels between two projects
- Launch two instances of Storyboard Pro, and open your first project in the first instance, and your second project in the second instance.
- In the project containing the panels you want to copy, in the Thumbnails or Timeline view, select the panel or panels you want to copy.
- Do one of the following:
- In the top menu, select Edit > Copy Panels.
- Press Ctrl + C (Windows) or ⌘ + C (Mac OS).
- In the top menu, select Edit > Paste Panels.
- Press Ctrl + V (Windows) or ⌘ + V (Mac OS).
The panels you copied from the first project will be inserted in the second project, right after the selected panel.
NOTE: If you pasted the panels between two scenes, it will create a new scene and prompt you to decide how the new scene and subsequent scenes should be named.
