Duplicating pages from other projects

Hi,
I've built 3 pages with RSD and saved them under seperate projectnames. They should however be 3 pages of the same project / website. How can I duplicate (or move) a page from one project to another?

I think you can open two instances of RSD and do copy than paste all the page content.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

You can indeed open two instances of RSD but copying from one two another doesn't seem to work. You can't copy, only duplicate within the same project.

Rows can be copied across successfully as follows.

(a) One opens the source project file, selects the row to be copied across. and, in the Components panel, clicks on 'Create Component from Selection'.
(b) One gives the component a suitable name, and saves it to the Components Library by clicking on the export symbol which is in the heading line of the component box (next to the delete symbol).
(c) Then, and only then, one opens or creates the project file which is to receive that row, and, in the Components panel, clicks on 'Add Component from Library' to add the recently saved component.
(d) That component can then be placed in the usual way wherever one chooses in that receiving project file.

One can create a component only as a row and save it to the library with other projects open and then add the new component to the other projects even they were all open at same time in different windows. Done it that way many times with many projects open at same time if the page has more than one row then you will have to save every row on that page as a component

Thanks for that, Wayan, as it speeds things up considerably. I think that perhaps I tried that when components were first introduced, and it seemed not to work for me - but it certainly works beautifully now.

I'm sorry but I cannot find the components panel?

At the top right are icons for the Layout, Content, Design, Settings, and Inspector panels. The Content panel has three tab titles: Elements, Components, and Symbols. Clicking on the Components tab does the trick.

My Content panel is called Elements and has only one tab: Elements. I think here's a difference in versions. I'm using RSD version 1
