Copying text files in the Binder

I just started using Scrivener and I think it’s great. One thing I just noticed myself trying to do was to copy a text file in the Binder, so I could rework it while still seeing the original. The only way I could do this was to copy all the text into a new text document.

Would it be possible to simply choose the text document in the Binder, and copy-paste it (just as Apple allows with slides in Keynote)?

Best regards,

Hi binotto,

welcome to Scrivener.

Click on the document you want to duplicat, Document-> Duplicate or: Cmd-D


Thanks Maria!

I figured this out but only after right-clicking the document I wanted to duplicate and wondering briefly whether the function didn’t exist. I think it should be added to the context menu if possible.
