There is no interface (as of 2.5.2) to directly share assets between projects, but there is workaround: create a template which contains the assets you want to share. You can then import that template to any project you are a member of and the assets will come along with it. You can even delete the template from the new project and the assets will remain. A little clunky, but it works.

Er, okay. Yeah, that's clunky, but I'll keep it in mind.

Another work-around would be to save all the assets you want to share to your computer's desktop and then create a zip file containing all of them. You can then upload the zip file to another project and extract it within protoshare.

You can import assests (clippings) from one project to the next by using Protoshare's Import functionality. You access this by navigating to the "Project" tab within the top nav bar, from the drop-down menu you choose Clippings. This brings up the clipping management interface, which gives you options to create new, edit, rename, duplicate, delete, and import. The import function is what you want to use to import clippings from one project to the next.

The only thing we need now is for a way to share clipping's amongst ourselves, and be able to import other peoples creations like you can with other desktop applications.
