Copying Projects

Rather than creating a new project from scratch it can sometimes be useful to useful to copy an existing project (for example one of the supplied example projects) and use that as the basis of your new project.

To copy a project in a workspace:

  1. Right click on the name of the project in the Project Explorer.
  2. Click on 'Copy'.
  3. Right click on the name of the project again.
  4. Click on 'Paste'.
  5. A dialog will pop up asking what you want to name the new project.

Note: You can only copy a project if it is 'Open'. To 'Open' a 'Closed' project, right click on the project name and click on 'Open Project' in the menu.

Once you have created your new copy of the project, it is advisable to then edit the new project as follows. This will prevent any confusion between this new project, and the old project that you created the new one from.

  1. Change the name of the Build Artifact (for all build configurations) in Project properties to match the name of the new project. In the below screenshot, you would change the lpc17_hello to new_project. Note that if you instead change the build artifact to ${ProjName}, then this will automatically cause the artifact name to always match the name of the project. This will thus avoid the need to manually change the artifact name if you ever rename/copy the project again in the future.
