Import other schematics and PCB layouts into new projects


I’d like to create new schematic and PCB layout by using finished schematics and layouts of other projects.
I remember this is possible in Eagle, that I could import another schematics as new sheet and the board layout was imported also into the PCB file, which I found very handy especially when I use parts of a circuit multiple times.
Can I do this with KiCad also? How is this usually done?


append schematics either via hierarchical sheets or via append function.

For layouts it’s more bumpy. See some recent threads by @PCB_Wiz about that.
