    Copy a Project

    JKersh
      Is there a way to copy an entire project in X5? My department wants two versions of the same Help system running simultaneously. If there's no way to copy the whole thing, any advice on the most efficient way to recreate the project in a different folder?

      Thanks!

          Windows cut and paste!

          If you are talking about different drives then you might want to zip it up, move it and then unzip it.

          I am assuming these two projects are not to brought back together again. If they are then post back or are we just talking about output?

            They're two separate projects, not to be brought back together, with separate outputs. At one point one of them will become the only one (long, convoluted story). So my best bet is maybe to create a new project and import the topics? This is a big (50mg) project.

              Who said anything about a new project? Copy the main folder for the old project and paste that wherever. Rename the folder, then open it as if it were a different project. go to File | Rename Project and then off you go.

              No need to recreate the structure, TOC and everything else.

                Thanks, Peter...that's just what I need. I had no idea it could be that easy.
