Passing a rig from .bend to .blend

What I want to do is pass a rig (full bones and armature) to another .blend file,

I already tried to append, but when I select the files and press “append from library”, they don’t show in the blender scene.
I also tried to use link but same thing, the object doesn’t show.

I heard this may have to do with what scene I’m on but I my panel says I’m displaying all the scenes.


If you append an armature then you then need to assign the armature to a bone. Add a bone and in the Armature settings select the appended armature
