Copy and paste project tasks into new project or subprojects



You can copy and paste project tasks in the following ways.

1. Paste the copied task(s) into the same project you copied them from

Press Ctrl+C to copy tasks in the Project Tasks view.  After copying them to the clipboard, press Ctrl+V to paste them back into the same project they were copied from.  This makes a copy under the same project.

2. Paste into a new project, directly under that project

After copying, select a new project in the Project Tasks tab and press Ctrl+V.  The pasted tasks go into the selected project.

3. Paste into a new project and subproject

After copying, select a row of the subproject you want to paste into.  The newly pasted tasks will go under that subproject.

4. Paste into every project, not using a subproject

After copying, right-click on any project and choose Paste into Project...  A dialog appears that lets you paste copied tasks into any project.  Choose "All Projects" from the dropdown list.  When you click OK, a warning appears.  That warning tells you that a large number of tasks could result from this action because you are creating a copy of the task(s) under EVERY project.  It also explains that new projects may appear because tasks will be added to projects that didn't have any before.

5. Copy and paste subprojects and tasks

If you copy an entire project hierarchy that contains subprojects, and then paste into another project, you will be duplicating that entire structure.  All the subprojects and tasks will be duplicated in the new project.
