[Squeakland] Copying from one project to another?

Hi, Mark,

Here are a few options for copying objects from project to project:

(1)  Drag the object into the Supplies bin.  You can then drag a 
fresh copy of it out from Supplies into any project any time you wish.

(2)  Use "copy to paste buffer" ("copy & print" branch of an object's 
halo menu) to put a copy of the object into a special, invisible 
place called the "paste buffer."   Then, to get a fresh copy in any 
project, bring up the desktop menu (shift-esc) and choose "new morph" 
... "from paste buffer."

(3)  You can also "park" your object in a "shared flap" such as the 
"Squeak" flap obtainable from the standard developers' variant of 
flaps -- or create your *own* shared flap, which can then be accessed 
from any project.

(4)  You can also send a copy of any object to any project by simply 
using drag-and-drop.  Drag the desired object over the project's 
icon, and drop it; when you see the message "GOT IT!" you'll know 
that the object has been copied to the other project; enter that 
project and you'll see the copy there.
