I am looking for help on how i make a duplicate of my rh 2019 xpj project, reataing all docs, links, toc, index, etc.  Is there a way to do this, without affecting my original project, so the origirnal project can be used for the new project edits/updates/additions/deletions? 

 

Thanks for any help, instructions to accomplish.

Hi Jeff, thanks for the quick reply...  i've followed your second suggestion, and making some progress i think (hope)... do you know how i can edit the output .chm file name when i create?  Even though i have updated the project name, and saved, when i create the output, it is picking up my original project name (but saved in the new copy/folder location.

2 ways I think - inside RH with the original project open, do a Save As to another folder; or outside of RH, copy the whole folder structure of the project to another folder, then open the new copy up in RH and rename it to the new title.

Sorry, skip the Save As bit - got that confused with the Rename Project function (d'oh!)
