You can import presets that are saved in your system's Object Preset Paths either of two ways.
•Use the Add menu to add a new object based on a preset. This menu shows all the presets saved in the Object Preset Path(s).
•Right-click on any object and select "Import into" à "Using Preset" and select the desired preset.
You can also import presets from a file saved in any arbitrary location, again in either of these two ways:
•Use the Add menu to add a new object based on a "Preset From File..."
•Right-click on any object and select "Import into" à "Using File..."
You can create new presets by configuring any object in the Object Browser, right-clicking it, and selecting "Export". From here, you have two options:
•Export To Preset - This will save the preset in your export path and make the preset available in the "Add" menu.
•Export To File - This allows you to save the preset to any arbitrary location. The preset will not be available via the "Add" menu unless it is saved in one of the Object Preset Paths.
