Saving an entire outline

I finished the first draft of a screenplay (in record time, I might add, thanks to Scrivener!) and I am about to start dealing with a pile of producer's notes.

I would like to go back into the 90 or 100 index cards that I created on Scrivener (in my Binder) and use them as the basis for a new outline. That will mean creating many new cards, deleting many old cards and generally scrambling everything around a great deal.

But I would also like to keep some record of the original order, with all the old information still attached (scenes, project notes, etc).

I realize I could print the entire thing out. But is there a way to save it -- within Scrivener -- and then use the cards as a starting point for my new outline?

How about Documents > Duplicate?

(You need to select the Draft folder in the Binder first.)

You should judge people not by how close they get to the top, but by how far they have come from the bottom. Some people have a mountain to climb just to get to the place where others start out. (Me, 2010)
