Duplicating your project is handy if you would like to order multiple copies of one project with minor differences in each. For example, I can create a Family Tree Poster or Family History Book for myself, duplicate it, and manually change the starting person to my sibling. This allows me to easily create a poster or book for them with all of the edits and customizations I already made to my own project!
To learn how to duplicate your projects, watch the video tutorial below or keep reading for step-by-step instructions.
Go to the My Projects section of the MyCanvas website.
Locate the project under "My Creations" and click the green "Duplicate" button below it.
You'll see a new project appear with the title "Copy of..."
To edit and rename the "Copy of..." version, click the blue "Edit" button below the copied project. Enter a new name for your project at the top of the screen, then click Save.
You may easily locate and continue both projects in your Account Creations.
