How do I move multiple layers from one canvas to another??
on Jan 29, 2007 at 7:48:26 pm

I'm working in two different projects/canvas. I need to take multiple layers (15) from one to another. I DON'T want to drag/copy them individually. There has got to be a faster way?

thanks in advance.

SHIFT select the layers you want to copy/move and right-click the mouse and choose duplicate layers (or menu Layer/Duplicate Layers...). A dialog box asking where you want to copy them to will appear. Under the "document" option, choose a new document or an existing PSD you have open.

if your other file is open, once you've shift-clicked the layers you want to copy you can drag them straight to the other open file.

in addition, if the layers you want to drag to the other file are already linked (with the paper clip icon), you can use the move tool to drag them straight to the other open file without having to selecting each layer... note, you must drag from the window, not the layers palette in this case.

you should also be able to group the layers into a layer set and drag that set to the other open file as well.
