I've created a new surface (kitchen tiles) with a specific texture (.jpg), i've used attribute manager to append this surface to a different project, but after I make the import it shows no surface (violet chess pattern). I'm asking if there is a workaround to import "old" surfaces to a new project.
Thanks for your help in advance!

Make sure you copy the jpeg in to a loaded library for the project.

Just a guess

That is a good guess. :)
When ever you see the checker board pattern, it means the image file (JPG, PGN) is not in a loaded library.
The image file is just referenced by the attribute - it is not actually transferred with it.
