Right click in Project Tab → Import Package → Custom Package
🔺 Updating to a newer version
If you are updating the asset from an older version it is best to delete the asset folder & do a clean install for the least amount of friction with the new version. If the update is just a patch you should be good to just import on top of the old files, but consider a clean install if the asset doesn’t work as intended or throws an unknown error.
