Importing flows

You can import individual flows into existing projects; for example, if you want to bring together multiple existing pieces into one project for publishing, or if you have an empty project file with your preferred settings saved and want to reuse those settings.

Procedure

  1. Choose File > Import > Flows to open the File Explorer/macOS Finder.
  2. Locate and select the project files of the flows you want to import.
  3. Click Open to open the Flow Import Options dialog for the first selected project.
  4. In the Flow Import Options dialog, choose one of the following options for Player handling:
    • Create All New Players

    • Merge with Existing Players Where Possible

  5. In the Import flows list, activate the checkbox for each flow you want to import.

    You can also click Select All or Select None at the bottom of the list.

  6. Click OK to import the selected flows and close the dialog.
  7. Optional: If you selected multiple projects from which to import flows, repeat steps 4 to 6 for each project. The Flow Import Options dialog reopens automatically for each project.

Result

The selected flows are imported into the project.

  • If you chose Create All New Players, new players are added as required for each flow.

  • If you chose Merge with Existing Players Where Possible, any players that the imported flows and existing project have in common are merged; for example, if you imported a flow containing one piano into a project containing a piano and viola, the imported flow is added to the existing piano player.

Note
  • Players are not automatically added to flows that you imported into the project.

  • You can also open flows directly if you want them to be separate projects rather than new flows in existing projects.
