Repurposing a Document

If you want to use an existing document as the base for a new one, the HTML editor can help.

To start a new document using an old one as the base (much like the Save as function some document editors use), use the following steps.

  1. Navigate to the document you want to start with, and click Edit in the Actions menu.
  2. At the top of the document window, where the editing settings are, click HTML. This will switch the document editor into HTML mode and expose the HTML code.
  3. In a different browser tab, start creating a new document.
  4. Click HTML to put the new document into HTML mode.
  5. Select all the HTML in the base document and paste it into the new document.
  6. Switch the new document back to the full editor and edit the document before saving.
