How to replace an object by another one?

Use the 'swap object' option to replace an object

In the editor, you can easily replace one object by another while keeping its position, its properties, timing and even its animation settings.

To do that, first, make sure you have the new object available in your Library. If the new object is, for example, a picture, make sure you've uploaded it to your Personal Library.

On the Stage, select the object you want to replace. You will see its Properties in the top right area of the Editor. Next, drag your new object from the library and drop it in the dashed object placeholder.  

That's all! Now your new object has replaced the original one and has taken over its position, properties, timing, and animations, except for special animations that are object-specific.
