Importing VWX into another VWX

Question

Is there an easy way to import one VWX into another VWX? I know I can copy and paste, but looking for an import so I can choose what classes and then define a prefix for the import.

I don't think there is a particular workflow to import and rename classes.  However, you can import existing classes (and Layers for that matter) easily enough by using the Import Classes option of the New Class Dialogue. This will import a class or selection of classes with all their associated attributes, tags etc....

Or even Reference in using a Design Layer Viewport and then break the reference.

Seems like plenty of work-arounds. 

 

Here's another - and what I ended up doing:

  1. Use batch rename to prefix all of my classes in my target document. 
  2. Copy and paste in place from source document to target document. 
  3. Batch rename to prefix imported classes and objects. 
  4. Remove the prefix from my original set of classes. 
  5. Begin the sorting process.
