How to Copy a Group Between Project Files

It is very easy to take a channel saved in one project and drag/drop it into another project for the purposes of re-using that "instrument" (so to speak). 

Unfortunately, Groups don't show up in the file view, so if you have a submix on a Group and want to bring over the whole thing from one project to another, you can't. You have to manually move each channel within the group, re-group them, and then manually copy any FX present on the Group itself. 

Selecting the Group in Project A, choosing "copy" and then opening Project B and choosing "paste" doesn't work. 

Is there a way to properly copy a Group from one project to another?

    Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to work at all. What I just did, not much convenience coming with that though, is opening the original track with its group, creating a blank audio track and then copying over (Ctrl + Drag) all FX from the group to the single track. This way I can more or less copy the group’s FX to the new project. Hope this helps a bit.

    You have to drag and drop the Entire document “als” into an empty track in your open set.

    Then you “only” have to remove all the groups you don’t need.

     

    But if you need the returns you have to make further steps...
