Transferring Textures

I looked on the XWE website and I could not find out how to transfer a texture from one wad to another,load up a totally new sprite entirely,or load a pic that I did on MS paint to be used as a sprite,texture,etc.Do I even need to do any of this on XWE?

Here's the situation.I want to use the H2H-Xmas snowing texture on my wad,how do I copy the texture from one to another?

There was another thread about this somewhere... basically one method is to save it as a .png file in a standard directory, (using the top menu's 'entry' command) than load up the new wad to use the entry toolbar to but it back in.

This gets rid of palette discrepancies that would occur if you were to simply copy/paste the image or whatever from one wad to another without making it an 'outside' file. However this trick does work well with music. For example load up HeXen.wad, copy a music track than in your custom DooM 2 wad you simply paste the file in and re-name it D_RUNNIN - now the standard level 1 'Entryway' music is replaced by a cooler track that works for a 'Hellish Catacomb' themed level!

A quick tutorial is at DooM Nexus.

"A. This is actually very simple in XWE. Just follow these steps:"
At #6 it says XWE automaticly creates "PP_START/PP_END entries, creates PNAMES and TEXTURE1, etc." but that doesn't happen for me. I have to restart XWE then PP_START/PP_END, and TEXTURE1 appears, but no PNAMES.

Then I try to load this PWAD into doom builder but I do not see my textures.

The textures are 128 and I am using the DOOM.WAD.

any ideas?

I really wish XWE would allow you copy'n'paste from window one to another. Then I could finally stop using WinTex (which allows precisely that) :).

(And if you could rearrange textures in the TEXTURE1 lump, merge two TEXTURE1 lumps together, and remove unused entries from PNAMES, I could also stop using DeePSea's resource editor ;).)

Yeah, it would be amazing if XWE or SLumpEd could do all that stuff :(
