Hi. Is there any way to save a binder draft so that it can be restsored after revisions?
I am making major changes in the structure and chapeter sequence of my project. I am doing this using collections and groups and scrivening, without touching the Binder sequence. Before I revise the binder draft to reflect the new structure, I would like to know if there is some way to restore the original Binder, in case I find a fatal flaw in the new version?

Why not simply save the project with a new name, like XXX-2 ?
I am a user, writing non-fiction and science, using:
* Mac Scrivener 3 on a Macbook 12”, MacBook Pro 13”, and iMac 27”, all running the latest MacOS
* iOS Scrivener 1 on an iPhone 8, iPad Air 9.7”, and iPad Pro 12.9”, all running the latest iOS

Thanks for your reply, lunk, and excuse my lack of comprehension. but how would it help to have two versions of the project? I assume you mean that I could then go back to the earlier version if my revisions don't work. But that would mean losing any other changes I might have made while revising the binder. Also, there are several hundred files and documents in my project, and having two copies of it is bound to lead to chaos. If I'm missing something, please explain. Many thanks.
