Reusing assets in another site

Reusing assets in another site

The Assets panel shows all the assets (of recognized types) in your current site. To use an asset from the current site in another site, you must copy it to the other site. You can copy an individual asset, a set of individual assets, or an entire Favorites folder at once.

You might need to locate the file in the Files panel that corresponds to an asset in the Assets panel before you transfer the asset to or from your remote site.

To locate an asset’s file in the Files panel:

  1. In the Assets panel (Window > Assets), select the category on the left side of the panel for the type of asset you want to find.
  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) the asset’s name or icon in the Assets panel, then select Locate in Site from the context menu.

    The Files panel opens, with the asset file selected. The Locate in Site command locates the file corresponding to the asset itself; it does not locate a file that uses that asset.

To copy assets from the Asset panel’s Site list or Favorites list to another site:

  1. In the Assets panel (Window > Assets), select the category on the left side of the panel for the type of asset you want to copy.
  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) the asset or assets to copy, select Copy to Site, then select the target site name from the submenu. (The submenu lists all the sites you’ve defined.)

    The assets are copied to the specified site, into locations corresponding to their locations in the current site. Dreamweaver creates new folders in the target site’s hierarchy as needed. The assets are also added to the specified site’s Favorites list.

When you open a document in the target site, the Assets panel switches to that site, and shows the copied asset.
