dvsone1440, Gadget - the developers are aware of this issue and it is being looked at. All I can do for the time being is to up-vote the related story in our developer agenda regarding and offline Asset Library, as currently that is the considered solution, although it may not end up being the actual solution implemented
Thanks for the upvote. Its not a huge issue but one that would be nice if it was faster. I have done a bit of a workaround with an skp file with all my favorites already placed in it and I just copy from one file to the next.
