Is there a way to create a component and then share it with another user? or import a component that someone else has made?

I tried looking in the Library > Components directory and see all the default components but don't see any of the new components that I've saved/created myself.

Thanks for any help!

Poking around like that will get you into trouble. ;)

User components are locked to your CoffeeCup user account. However all you need to do here for this situation is save your component to a blank project and then give that project to someone else. They can then make their own component from it.

Haha I'm good at getting in trouble apparently!

OK, that's a good tip on the component. Thanks Scott!

What Scott says is exactly what I have been doing over the last couple of months: http://horgenhonning.net/sharing/

I'm still missing something...I get how I can get the files from Ingers site...
for example...lets say I download one of the FF or RSD files...
How do I then take, for instance, the menu from the project and put it into my components. Do I have to save it as another file type?

thanks,
MJ

Select the Row that the navigation is in and then go to the Content > Components area. Next, click Create Component from Selection. Now give it a name and description and then click icon with the square and up arrow to add it to your Components Library.

This is also covered in that pesky documentation. ;)
