I believe you can also just drag and drop if you have both files open at the same time. Or was that not implemented until v2019?

You can drag the file from explorer over the toolpath manager also.

You can import toolpaths directly from another MC file. No need to export, then import.

You can't do a group.

 

Make a new group And set WCS

 

Them import. You can pick use current WCS or use the one from the paths which could be in outer space or upside down depending on the operation

If you right click in the operations manager then select import you can choose the file you want to import the toolpath from then select import operation geometry checkbox and press the apply button, you then need to select a point to import your operations to.
