How to import an overlay from another project …

TIP: DO NOT import an overlay directly from another project, the file path will NOT change and the file will be blank.

  1. Open the resourceset of the project that contains the original overlay.
  2. Right-click on the overlay and select Extract to File.
  3. Save it to a folder on your computer – The file is saved as a .lxf file.

TIP: Create up a folder named Extracted_Overlays on your desktop.

  1. Open the resourceset of the project that you wish to import the overlay.
  2. Right-click on the overlay folder in the resourceset (where you store overlays) and select import and choose the saved .lxf file.
  3. Remember to categorize the overlay as an Overlay Resource Type!

Now this overlay is available to use in both projects.

Export, deploy and test!
