Import multiple files at once / cannot import by dragging from windows explorer to Synfig canvas

Hi there,

I’m new to the forums and Synfig. I’m working my way through the “How to create animation in Synfig (3rd edition)” tutorial videos.

I cannot seem to import multiple files at once. I have tried using file>import then shift + click or ctrl+ click but cannot select multiple files.

I have also tried selecting multiple image files from the tutorials in windows explorer, and dragging them into the Synfig canvas and Layers panels, but the files simply do not import.
For this matter too, I cannot import a single file by dragging from windows explorer to Synfig canvas.

I’m running Windows 10 Home edition 64 bit, and Synfig 1.2.2

For now I can continue the tutorials by importing the assets one by one, however long term to improve workflow I’m hoping there is a way to import many files at once.

Is there some other way to do this which I have missed?

Any help or feedback appreciated!


Please use new stable version 1.4.0
