Skinning buttons

As far as I know, LC does not copy the referenced art of a skinned button when moving a button to a different stack… at least, it never has for me. 

If you have the original stack still open when you paste the skinned button into a new stack, you'll still see the skinned view in that new stack. But, when you then open the new stack, by itself… you'll no longer see the art as part of the skinned button. 

I'd be happy to be corrected on this, because having it happen automatically would be nice.

be well,
randy

Is there a setting somewhere that can change this behaviour? In other words, if I select a button and drag the corner to resize it, I want the images of its skin to resize with it.
