Sometimes, it is desireable to import some user defined macros from other project libraries and customize those without affecting the original source file. If you simply attach library to the current project and edit the macro in the new project, you will actually be editting the original macro in the single attached library. attached library, It will therefore affect the source file, thus, the original macro in the original project as well.
To do this, copy each macro object individually from the original project library to the current library. This way you will now have 2 copies of the macro, one in each project library. 1. Open library manager. (Tools -> Library Manager) 2. Highlight the project library that contains the desired macro. 3. Click on the Objects tab to view all the macro objects in this library. 4. Highlight the object name that you wish to copy, select Object -> Copy, then fill out the Destination section, making sure the destination library is chosen correctly.
You will now have a local copy of the macro in the new project library.
