Is it possible to share Character Database?

Windows 10

PA Pro 10.05

I finished the first novel in a new series yesterday. I am about to write another novel using the same characters. Is there an easy way to copy the character database from my previous novel into the new pap project?

The character database is stored in a folder called “My Characters” in the previous novel’s project folder. Just copy the “My Characters” folder and paste it into the new project folder.

If the new project didn’t have a character database yet then connect the just copied one by selecting it under Document > Indices and Directories > Path to ‘My Characters’.

This method will create independent character databases for the old and the new project. You could also just connect the new project to the old database without creating a copy first.


Just did that today and it transferred across beautifully. Great system. Thanks.
