Hi,

It would be nice to be able to bulk import vector assets like SVG files by dragging and dropping many of them in the Assets panel from a file manager window. Or at least be able to use the import dialog from the panel's menu for vectors, just like we can already do with raster images. It seems like a glaring omission that we can only do it with one type of files.

Oddly enough I did a search on this forum for "Bulk vector assets import" and could not find a previous discussion on the subject.

p.s. I'm aware that we can import vectors one by one, but it's a tedious process when you want to add hundreds of files.

Alex

p.p.s. I bought all 3 in the space of 48h after having found Designer great, then tried Publisher and it really clicked with me. At that point I just decided to close the loop with Photo even though I'm doing fine with Gimp or Krita on that front. I love the small personal complementary application each product has. I love it so far and it will probably end up being my main tool for anything vector. Great job to the devs.

Hello @alexleduc,

welcome to the forum. Did you try this? I am able to drag any number of SVG files at once from explorer into the assets panel (on Windows).

Oh Weird. I saw a YouTube video that claimed that dragging and dropping multiple files only worked with raster images, so I just assumed it to be true. It must have been talking about an older version.

Thanks for the info!

Alex
