coping material from one project to a new one

  • How can I copy the material from one project to the next or can I copy a recording to a new project

  • 1) You can save a copy of your scribe with a new file name and all the elements will be in it. (then just delete the ones you don't want.)

    Make sure you see both copies are saved before you start changing one. You may also want to save a copy online as a backup.

    2) You can select multiple elements and copy them then close the scribe and create a new scribe and paste them in.

  • Thank you so much! I have one more question, I have a project that just contains a recording can I use that recording in another video?

  • You can save a copy of your scribe with a new file name and the audio will be in the new file. You can then delete some or all of the images if you wish.

    Or if you have the audio saved on your computer in MP3 format, you can import it into the new scribe.

  • total gratitude, 

  • I am copying elements from one scribe to another.  But I am finding that I cannot edit the elements once I bring them into the new scribe.  For example, I can't use the cursor to move them, or enlarge them.  The only way I am able to move them is to use the arrow keys.  Then, once I try to change the size, the change never sticks.  The element increases and decreases in size as I move the cursor.  I cannot disconnect the element to the cursor thereafter.  help!!!

  • Hi,
    If you are experiencing bugs that affect the scribe elements or the user interface, then there may be problems with your project resulting in excessive memory usage.

    You could try saving your project, closing and reopening videoscribe, and reopening the project, to see if that temporarily alleviates the symptoms, but there are probably issues that need to be corrected manually.

    You can save your project to the cloud folder and raise a ticket to consult customer support.

    If you have a lot of fonts imported in videoscribe, removing them from videoscribe can help free up some memory. The following thread also covers tips and suggestions: TIPS to avoid crashes, freezes, failure to render or erratic behavior (2015)

  • Also, if you are using a Mac, there is still an issue with using Ctrl+click. This command is used to bring up the right click menu in VideoScribe and using it can lead to loss of functionality, including the issue you have described with the mouse sticking to the resize handles after releasing it. If you save your scribe, restart the software and avoid using Ctrl+click, does the issue stop?
