Creating a Copy

Copy a document as a new document, discussion, or blog post. You can also use this feature to create templates from existing documents.

Copying documents streamlines quite a few use cases, such as the following:

  1. Go to a document you can edit. You must be able to edit the document you want to copy.
  2. Click Actions > Create a Copy in the actions menu, and then select whether you want to copy the document into another document, discussion, or blog post. You may not see one or more of these options if the place where the original document is stored does not support them, or you don't have permission to publish a particular content type there (for example, blog posts).
  3. Click Create a Copy.
  4. Edit the new item. Note that the title, body, and tags have all been pulled in from the original document. You can edit all of these, as well as change the place for the content before publishing.
  5. When you're finished editing, click Publish.
If you want to create a template from a document, be sure to read Creating a Template.
