Details

  1. Find the original (donor) application's folder in Windows Explorer.
  2. Open the Screen folder and find the screen that you would like to copy.  
    1. The .scr file is the actual Graphics Screen.  Copy any additional files with the same window name (ex: screenname.tag, screenname.txt, etc..).  
    2. If any graphics are used on the Screen which are associated with a file, you will need to copy this from the resource folder.
  3. Paste into the recipient application's Screen (or Resources) folder.
  4. Open InTouch Machine Edition and view your project, you should see the new window on the Graphics tab.
  5. From the Home tab select Verify.  This will map any tags on the window to the tags with the same name in the new project.
  6. Open the window and ensure everything looks correct, and map any nonworking animations to the correct tags in the new application.
