export collection to another project

It makes sense to me that I should be able to create a lists of tasks for a book, then save that as a collection and add it to a new book project. Can anyone tell me how to do that? I’ve been monkeying around but can’t seem to figure it out.

By “list of tasks” I assume you mean multiple documents in the binder that you’ve collated into a Collection? You can copy the documents to another project by opening the two projects side by side and then dragging the documents from the binder of one to the binder of the other. You’ll need to re-create the actual collection tab in the new project, but all the documents (as well as their synopses, notes, and snapshots) will be there.
