Use and organize local assets in the Library

This page applies to the local version of the Library. Learn how to use assets in your Studio Asset Library.

Add an asset to the document workspace

Drag the asset from the Library to the document workspace where you want to use it. You can add the same asset to the document workspace multiple times. The Count column in the Library panel displays how many times the document references each asset.

Replace an image in the document workspace

Right-click the image you want to replace, and select Swap image... from the pop-up menu.

In the dialog, either select an image from the Library or click the Import files button  to use an image from your computer (the image will be imported as a Library asset).

Organize your assets

You can rename assets in the Library, group them into folders, sort them, and delete them.

Create a folder in the Library

  1. In the Library panel, click the Add folder button .
  2. Name the new folder and press Enter.

Move an asset into a folder

  1. In the Library panel, select the assets that you want to move.
  2. Drag the assets into the destination folder.

Rename an asset or folder

  1. In the Library panel, either double-click the name of the asset or folder, or right-click the name and select Rename from the pop-up menu.
  2. Enter the new name and press Enter.
    • Asset names can't start with a space and can only include letters, numbers, spaces, dashes, and underscores.

Sort assets

You can order the list of assets in the Library according to name, usage count, type, or last modified date.

  1. If the column you want to use for sorting isn't visible, right-click any column header in the Library panel and select the new column name.
  2. Click the column you want to sort by. An arrow next to the column name indicates whether the sorting order is ascending (low to high) or descending (high to low).
  3. If you want to switch the sorting order, click the column name again.

Delete an asset or folder

  1. In the Library panel, right-click the asset or folder.
  2. Select Delete from the pop-up menu.

Any elements in your document that reference the deleted asset will have broken references.
