Exporting / importing set of custom paper sizes

We created a set of custom page sizes, using the new feature that became available last year in Dorico. As a result, we have now in the drop-down menu for Page Size in Layout Options something like this:

So, you see we have a Display Conductor, and Display 1 through Display 6.
Does anybody know, or have suggestions, how to save/export these special page sizes in a template file, so that they can easily be imported into an existing project?
Apparently, Page Template Sets do not register the page format (or: we didn’t find how to attach a specific page size to a specific Page Template).

If you Export the Library, and then drop that .doricolib file onto the Library Manager of another computer, you should be able to import the sizes.

Thanks Ben, it worked!
Stupid me for not seeing that before … :slight_smile: I had been looking in the Layout Options > Page Setup, and not in the Collections.

What about adding the .doricolib in the Default Library Additions folder?

Well, it will have the entire settings of the computer, which may conflict or duplicate.

A purpose-built .doricolib file could be built.

Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll incorporate it together with the company templates in one .doricolib.
