Dabble’s Duplicate Project tool allows you to (believe it or not) duplicate a project. The tool creates an exact copy of the entire project, including the manuscript, plot grid, story notes, and comments.
This allows you to make revisions on one copy, confident that your original draft and ideas remain untouched. You can duplicate your project as many times as you’d like.
How to Duplicate Your Project in Dabble
Duplicating your book project is really simple.
From the Project Screen
If you’re starting from within your book project, the first step is to return to the Project Menu.
To get there, click the Home button at the top of the left pane navigation menu.
From the Project Menu
Hover your mouse over the project you would like to duplicate. You will see three vertical dots appear in the lower right-hand side of the project image.
Click the three dots to see the Project Actions dropdown menu.
Click “Duplicate Project.”
You will see a new project image appear. This is your project copy. If you click on it, you’ll find its contents are identical to your original project.
How to Rename Your Duplicate Project
Dabble automatically labels your duplicate project with the name of your original project, plus the word “copy.” If you would like to change the name of your duplicate project, the steps are simple.
Start in the Project Menu.
Hover your mouse over the project you would like to rename to reveal three vertical dots in the lower right-hand side of the project image.
Click the dots to see the Project Actions dropdown menu.
Click “Rename Project.”
A box will appear with the header “Project Name.” Click inside the Title box to edit or change your project title. Then click “OK” in the lower right-hand side.
The project menu should now show your project with its revised project name.
