I'm just a beginner, but if what you wish to bring into your new blender work area is a .blend file, you can "append" (otherwise known as import) the file from the File menu in the upper left. I believe that you must be in "Object" mode when doing so. If I'm wrong or I misunderstood, my apologies. Perhaps this will help: Additional link info


Anyone trying to import grease pencil drawing into another grease pencil file:

  • Click File --> Append
  • Select the Grease Pencil File you want to import -->
  • A new menu of directories pops up, select COLLECTION -->
  • A new list of collections pops up --> select COLLECTION again.
  • Done, your Grease Pencil object should now be "in" another Grease Pencil canvas.

Additional resources on stackexchange. They did not help me, but might help you:
