    Convert Project Parameter to Shared Parameter

    I know with the Extensions you can convert familiy parameters to shared parameters but I would like to do this with project parameters. Does anyone know if that is possible at this time?

    I was looking for this same thing the other day and was to no avail. I do not believe this is possible at this time.

    Hi guys,
    there's a way to achieve this. first you should have already a shared parameter file related to your project.
    Go to Manage>project parameters. Select the parameter and then Modify.
    Select in the window Export. get an info message then OK.
    Go to shared parameters, you have now a new group named Exported parameters.
    Select the parameter you've just exported, then Move.
    Select now the group of the other shared parameters. You're done.
    Your exported parameter is available in other projects as a shared one.
    Let me know if you have problems.

    See below please......

    When I go to do this "Export" is grayed out so I cannot select to export...am I missing something?

    Checking.............................

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So, my fault my very fault, what I explained was in fact a way to keep already SHARED parameter when the .txt file is missing.( I did it a little too fast......it's bed time for me now!)

    Sorry guys, no way to transfer Project parameter to Shared one.(for now, I will test something at work tomorrow).

    But there always a way to transfer Project parameter to another one with Transfer Project Standards

    see you
