Godot newbie here. I was attempting to use the ui tutorial at Design the GUI — Godot Engine (3.1) documentation in English

and the instructions are to “Download the project files: and extract the archive. Import the start/ project in Godot to follow this tutorial.”

I struggled with this for sometime before realizing I needed to create a new project and import the .godot file from the start/ folder.

Is there a way to import the start/ folder and the project it contains into an existing project?

Thank you.

After you downloaded Demo you want to extract the .zip file.
Then you need to navigate to the start folder and copy or cut it out and place it to where your other Godot projects are located.

After that you can open Godot and press on the button “Import”. You need to navigate to that folder and select the “project.godot” file.
The demo project should be opened now.

You dont need to create a new project, if you wanted to import files from the demo project to your actual game project, you would copy and paste the files from the start folder into your game folder.

I hope that cleared all your questions ^^
