Save Nulls and Shape layers to be brought into another file

I made myself a simple ruler in after effects and would like it to be easily accessible at any time in any project. I'm just starting with expressions so not quite sure how to save things out. The ruler is simple, a few nulls, shapes and expressions.

Thank you.

Make a bare-bones AE project containing ONLY what you need to make your ruler. Save it in a place you'll never forget.

Then, when you need it in another project, just import your ruler project. Neat!

Thanks for the quick response Dave!

Yeah that is currently the way i plan on using it. Was hoping for a quicker way. One click and pow! There's my beautiful ruler "plugin" type deal.

Sorry, nothing quite that elegant yet in AE.

You might like this script:

It generates Ae script files to re-create comps.
