Make a copy of a whole folder that is used as a template.

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.

Agreed. Really would have thought this is a standard "launch" feature.

 

I also would like to reuse the same 3 / 4 paper documents. Would be awesome to simply copy a folder (with the 3/4 documents), rename to the new project/client's name & start 🙂

 

Currently you need to copy the contents of each document into a newly created one.. 😞

Please add this ability. I'm on Evernote now, and despite all of the amazing features in paper making me want to switch, this is a blocking issue preventing me from doing so.

This function NEEDS to be added.  I have a template folder with documents inside.  I want to be able to replicate that template folder, then rename it, in order to easily create folders.  These folders are used as documentation for various clients.  The structure is the same.  As it is, I'm forced to copy/paste manually.  

 

This is a suggestion that has existed for a long time now.  It needs to happen.  This is something I used in Evernote consistently.  Not being able to copy a file or folder in today's IT world is crippling.

At present we cannot create a copy of an existing document and save it with another names. This will help users

Paper is amazing! :heart_eyes:

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

Thank you for taking our ideas under consideration.
