Layout Book

Good! I hope you are okay. I have a question, is it possible to take layouts and masters from another project opened in another instance of Archicad to my current project? for now I can only see.

Try File > Interoperability > Merge

 

There are two options, Layout book or Virtual Model.

 

I haven't done it myself, but the naming sounds like what you are after.

Perhaps make a copy of your file first just in case it's not successful or has undesired results.

Solution

You can also open the 'Organiser' with that button you were showing.

Then on the left side of the organiser, you can have it look at the other Archicad file (or you can browse for any file - it does not have to be open).

Then drag the layouts and masters from the left to the right side which is your current file.

 

Just be aware, if you do this, and drawings already placed on those layouts will be linking still to the original file.

So you either have to delete them and place new ones from the views in the current file, or 're-link' them to Internal views in the current file.

 

I am not sure if the same linking problem occurs with the merge method mentioned by Josh.

It is not something I have actually tried.
