What is the correct way to make a copy of a VM Arduino project and save with a new name (in AS7)?

Hi,

If you right click the main project_name.ino and click rename. Then some workflow should help with this.

Thanks.  I can do the rename now.  But how do you do a Save-as, in order to make another version of the project which is a copy of the original?

There isn't a menu to do that but you can use windows explore to copy a project folder. Then delete the vcxproj and .sln if they exist in the copied folder. Ensure the project_name.ino matches the name of the new folder. Then use file>open>arduino project to open the .ino. Workflow will then create a new project and solution for you.
