Import/Export

If I've missed this somewhere in a feature, I apologize, but I had a thought. I often re-use basic things like an NPC, a setting/scenario, a deck (Deck of Many Things) in different campaigns. Is there a way, or could there be, to export parts of a campaign, even if only for the purpose of importing it to another? This also made me wonder if there is a way to print or otherwise export a journal in its entirety so that a non-Roll20-specific record could be maintained of a particularly satisfying scene/campaign/session? So far this is exactly what I've been looking for to play online with my good friends. Amazing work!

Using assets across campaigns would be useful - especially the music selection :) Another possibility is something like ifttt.com does - save Recipes that others can then use/import into their campaigns. Is this what the "Modules" are going to be used for?

Yeah I actually just did a test run with a friend, and even having a Token that is static (so that effects, notes, settings are kept the same across all pages of a campaign and/or across multiple campaigns) would be useful too. I have a few quirky NPCs that all my players recognize because they show up in almost every campaign, even if only for a cameo. That's a place where an export/import feature would be monumentally awesome

You can crtl-C "copy" and token and place it any where you need? But i dont think this works across campaign settings. However if you had all your icons or tokens saved on your desktop in a folder the drag and drop feature make this a snap, but only works for import. This is however not the case for journal entries, so yes i can see an "export/import" button being very useful within the journal notes under edit.

I just tested and everything you upload or star is available in the art library across campaigns in your account. Import/Export will probably come into play with the Module system.

My desire for export is actually to export more than images. I want to be able to export a character, or an entire page, for use in another campaign. Or other pieces, like a playlist, a deck of cards that has been painstakingly created, etc. On an almost unrelated note, I realized that I want tokens to be more uniform/static across a campaign, so that I can just take all the PCs from one page to the next, as a way of tracking where they are in the campaign...
