Author Topic: saving materials question  (Read 1396 times)

If I make a new project, make a material and then save it, how do I save it as a different material if I tweak some changes? I only seem to be able to save it as the same material.

I tend to have my Substance and the .sbs project file named the same.  It's not necessary, but it's less confusing to me.  You can have multiple Substance graphs in a single file, in which case they cannot all have the same name as the file that contains them.  But most of my projects are the simple, single-graph type of project.

a) Right-click to SaveAs to a different file
b) Right-click to change the name of the Substance (a.k.a "Material")

That should do the trick.

Right click on your graph in the explorer and hit copy. Now right click on your project / package and hit paste. This will make a duplicate. ctrl-c and ctrl-v don't always seem to work for some reason.
