Branch a project in source control

Branch a project in source control in order to create a copy of the project that can be developed separate from the original.

To perform this task, you must be connected to your collaboration server.

To branch a project in source control:

  1. Save and close all open worksheets.
  2. Either check in or undo any pending changes.
  3. Right-click the project root (e.g., Project: projectname.APP) in the Project Explorer, and then click Branch on the shortcut menu.
  4. On the Branch page, in the Target box, type a new name for the branch, and then click OK.
The branch is created in source control, but the new project is not yet saved on your computer.

To save the new branch on your computer, open it from source control.
