Copy Folders and Files in Paper

Helpful | Level 6

One function that is needed in Paper is the ability to duplicate folders and files.  A huge part of functionality for me, in Evernote, is that I develop a template folder with a multi-note structure.  I then duplicate that template whenever I need.

 

This functionality is sorely needed in Paper.  I currently see no way for me to take a folder and copy it within Paper.

Paper is amazing! 

If we could copy Paper folders it would be even more amazing. 

Thank you for taking our ideas under consideration.

Looking forward to this option.

sgopalan : I always use the function 'Templatize' >> 'Make a copy' >> 'Create doc'.

By this the document gets copied and your copy is also named seperatly with (copy)

There's currently no way to duplicate a Paper or folder/set of folders. 

 

Two reasons this can be useful:

1. Creating backups

2. Using a template folder structure as a way of keeping folders organized and consistent
