Today I will show you how to use new feature called “Export/Import Blocks as PNG” feature which added in Kodular Eagle.
Maybe you didn’t noticed that feature since release notes are so long. So I thought a guide for this feature may be good.
When you export the blocks as PNG image, a XML file is adding to image also. So when you import back to the Creator, it parsing the XML file, then creating the blocks from metadata which inside of the image.
Select your favourite procedure or block part, then right-click on it. Finally, click the “Download Blocks as PNG” option.
Note that, you can’t download all blocks, this feature only allows one block and/or its all sub-connected blocks.
It is easier than exporting! Just simply drag the blocks image then drop to the blocks editor!
Unfortunately, when you share blocks to someone you must use specified platforms, because most platforms are deleting the XML code from image such as Discourse.
Yes, you can edit the exported image with using some image editors. Others are deleting the XML code too.
So I and Peter used some platforms to test if XML code is staying or not when editing/publishing the image on somewhere. This list can be updated later, so don’t forget to check this list regularly.
|Software||Platform||Is it deleting the XML code after editing?|
|Snip & Sketch||Windows||Yes|
|Ubuntu Image Viewer||Linux||No|
Hosting / Sharing
|Hosting||Is it deleting the XML code after hosting?||Notes|
|Cloudinary||No||Cloudinary gives direct link of the image when you upload to it, so it stays with same data.|
Just drag this image to the Kodular Creator. And see the secret blocks.
That’s it! You can ask any questions about this feature from this topic.
