A great way to reuse requirements or start a new project from a template is to use the duplicate project feature.

To duplicate a project, select the Project button above the Explorer Tree and select Manage all projects:


Select the project you wish to copy and then select Duplicate project from the Actions menu above.

The Duplicate Project pop-up window will appear:

All of the detail on the Details and settings tab of the project settings dialog will be copied into the new project.
