would love this feature seen some nice needles/hands on other peoples watches i could reuse, instead at present i have to duplicate watch with the feature in and remake my watch from scratch. would be useful if saving that layer was added to the phone for future use.

It would also be nice to copy layers within the project, with all the custom attributes and code attached to it of course.

Exporting/Importing layers and/or groups world acheive this and allow one to develop reusable"parts."

I agree! We need this!

Totally agree with this. We have weather. We can use it on computer, those who have them.. But we don't have this and ive needed it from the start. Was thinking of this today, yesterday..

It's a 'must have'

Not that I haven't found elements on other people watch faces that I would like to implement in my own watches, but some people, like myself, spend hours on end in Illustrator and Photoshop creating watch faces, hands, dials etc.
I find it o.k. that if you wish to steal other people's work, you should have to do a little work yourself, i.e. copy a watch face, delete the elements that you don't want and then start to build 'your' watch around the elements that are left over.
Plagiarism shouldn't be made that easy.

That's true: I initially suggested this idea because I was tired of copy-pasting my own scripts every time I started a new face, not thinking about plagiarism.
Plagiarism is a problem but, like you said, is already possible.
I guess this funtion wouldn't affect protected faces, so the problem of plagiarism will be basically like now.
