Copying Structures one world to another

    Hi Carl Fox

    I'd actually recommend a tool called Amulet

    You can use it to edit and copy structures from Education world and it's a lot quicker and easier than using the structure block.  

    This is the basic procedure for using the tool: 

    Before you start:  I would backup and export any worlds from Minecraft EE you intend to use the tool with prior to use. Amulet is not supported in any way by Minecraft Education Edition. 

    1. Open the world you want to copy from in MEE. 

    2. Open the world you want to copy to in MEE. 

    3. Close both worlds and close Minecraft (make sure you always have Minecraft closed before using Amulet). 

    4. Click Open World

    5. Open other World (navigate to C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Minecraft Education Edition\games\com.mojang\minecraftWorlds)

    6. When looking for the correct world folder to open, the most recent worlds opened should be at the top of the list. Open the world you want to copy from. Click select folder. 

    7. Repeat the step above to open the destination world. 

    5. Go to the 3D Editor tab. It will take a little practice, but you will be able to select and copy the structure and paste it into the destination world. 

    If you have any questions, let me know. I'd be happy to jump on a virtual session to demonstrate if you need it.

    Now If you would like to create a behavior pack that you can use to import structures into other worlds.  That is really rather easy to do.  For behavior packs you do not enable them globally, you would enable them per world.

    I actually recommend placing your behavior pack for the structures into the Developmental Behavior Packs folder so that when you add new structures to the folder, they will be available next time you want to add them into any world. 
    Basically you can use this Pack I'm sharing.  If you import it into minecraft education edition I recommend going into the com.mojang folder where your education edition worlds folder is.  You will also see a behavior packs folder and a developmental behavior packs folder Before applying the Basic pack to any worlds, move it from behavior packs and into the developmental behavior packs folder.  That way updates to the pack (like when you save new structures into the structures folder) will be available to any worlds you enable the pack on.  (If you leave the pack in the regular behavior packs folder, it will get copied into the world folder and it can get difficult to know what was updated or where to put the structure files to get them into the world so for anything that you might be updating or working in, the developmental folders are the good ones to work in until you reach a "final" state.)

    I hope that makes sense.

    Also note that if the structure file is in the structures folder of the behavior pack, you can load the structure using commands and don't have to do it using a structure block.
    I recommend you do some testing and practice loading your structures to make sure you know how to get them placed properly and aligned the way you want them.  The location of the structure block does not dictate the location or reference where it loads.  It is really more like a stored clone command so the load coordinate is normally going to be the lowest coordinate.
    I hope that makes some sense.
