Assets Not Transferred From v1 to V2


Recommended Posts

Did it ask you whether it should migrate them, and did you say yes? If so, what happened after that?

And do you truly mean Assets, or are there other items that it did not migrate, such as Brushes and Styles?

Yes, I may have stumbled over this as well, but may have included some user error on my part. I did request that assets be migrated and it seemed like something was happening, but I didn't see my assets get pulled in. Finally found how to open the Assets panel (now symbols and assets are under Windows tab, not under view->studio like I thought they used to be) and didn't see my assets. Tried importing my assets from Designer 1 and remembered the category dropdown to find them. Unsure if I checked this before importing or not. Noticed that the assets file I imported didn't have the last few assets I had added in Designer 1, so went back into Designer 1 and exported to a new file and then imported that file to Designer 2. Now the dropdown had multiple Default category names, multiple versions of the category I was trying to get installed, and only one copy each of two categories that I didn't even remember I had installed on Designer 1, so not sure if they came in with the import or the migration. Long story short... I can't say for sure if the assets that I was looking for finally imported because of the explicit import I did, but the fact that there was only one set of each of the categories that I didn't even remember is curious. If they came in with the migration, why were there two default asset categories populated but only one of those. And there were three or so versions of the one I was trying to get loaded. I definitely confused things by forgetting to check the dropdown category list at every step along the way. 

Worst comes to worst, workaround is to export your assets in Designer 1 and import them back into Designer 2. You might need to do some cleanup to delete categories after everything is done.

It sounds like, perhaps, you saw the empty Default category and decided nothing had imported, and just missed clicking the dropdown to see your other categories.
