    Moving Documents to New Projects

    Issue Number:
    Is there a way to add an option to the document Transfer drop down box that lets you create a project from the page, making the page the main document? That way you can create the project from the primary parent node of the family of documents you're moving.

    Here's the deal. In my Adventures for the Imagination project, I have a ton of documents that are going to be turned into projects eventually. They include supplements and modules. Each one has a cover page that is parent to a bunch of child pages. When I go to create a new project for the parent document here is what I currently have to do: Create a project, go through the process of getting to the Transfer page for the chosen document, transfer the parent document, and then while in the new project, I have to now reposition each and every child page under the parent document to be under the cover document. For Delta Dawn that will mean 1 transfer and 18 repositions. Remember, I will have to do this for all the documents in my private project that I turn into new projects. So yes, while I won't be using it daily or even weekly, I will be using it frequently over the next year.

    I do know you don't have to reparent it all under the top-level document. That's just the way I prefer it is all.

    These aren't supplemental rulebooks like Gamma Dawn and Delta Dawn. I have only 1 more supplement that I'm planning and it has nothing to do with player-side rules. The rest include 7 modules and 1 (maybe 2) campaign book(s). So the large majority of the work will include stories and material for developing stories.

    While the books are developing, I'll want them in separate projects. As they're completed, I'll drop the pdf's into one project similar to the Remastered project, except involving only new materials.

    Come to think of it, forget it. When I transfer the documents to the final project to house it all, I'm going to want to be able to transfer them again to that project, and if the cover page of each project can't be moved to that project, then it wouldn't matter anyway. I'd still want a document cover page that I can move. Unless a project serves as a port for the cover document page, like slipping a cartridge into a slot or a book into a sleeve, it won't do me any good.
