Clone an Existing Form Letter

What if you want to make a lot of changes to an existing letter and still keep the original as a back-up?

The Clone feature creates a copy of a selected letter. Cloning the “Gym Excuse Letter,” for example, adds a new letter to the end of your form-letter list called the “(NEW) Gym Excuse Letter.”

Follow this procedure to clone a letter:

Choose the clone option from the list of options and press Enter.

Press Enter

A confirmation screen will tell you that the selected letter has been cloned. Press Enter to continue.

Select the New, Cloned Letter

Find the new letter at the bottom of your list of letters. The letter’s name will start with the word NEW, making it easy to find.
