Is there anyway to copy full sets of layer groups from a PSD to a FW PNG?

I am moving artwork from a PSD based document flow to a FW PNG workflow, however I cannot grab full sets of layer groups and their organization structure from a PSD I have to manually grab elements from a certain group and then paste them into individual groups for organization in the new file. This is horrendously innefficient. Is there a better way to do this that I am not aware of?


Thanks in advance for your help.

    Sure. Open the PSD in Fireworks.

    Is your hierarchy different between the two files?

    Barring opening the PSD in Fireworks and using THAT as the starting point for a template, I don't know of any way to copy/paste from Photoshop to Fireworks, while retaining the layer structure.


    If you opt for the option of opening the PSD in FW, you can save it as a PNG, or use the extension below to copy layer structure and content from one file to another.



    Hierarchical Layer Copy:

    Copy heirarchical layers without loosing the layer heirarchy. Usage: 1. Select the layer you want to copy. 2. Select Layer Copy from Commands -> Document menu. 3. Switch to document were you want to copy the layer heirarchy 4. Select Layer Paste from Commands -> Document menu.
