Create a copy of a version just as you would create a copy of a page.Just as you can create a copy of an individual page, you can also create a copy of a version. When you need to duplicate the content of a version, copying is the simplest way to do so.

You can create a copy of a version in the same space or in another space and begin working from the copy.

Create a Copy 

Navigate to the Document Manager


  • From a page in a document, click Document toolbox and click the cog icon.

Navigate to new version

  1. For the version you want to copy, click ••• in the Actions column and select Copy. The Copy version dialog displays.

Step 1: Select a location

  1. Pick a location for your copy by selecting the Confluence Space and then the Parent page.

  2. Click Next.

Step 2: Name your version

  1. By default, the title of the version is “Copy of” then the title of the document. You can also give your document a unique name.

  2. By default, the prefix is “Copy of” then the title of the version you’re copying from. All page titles of the copy will inherit this prefix. You can also choose to customize the prefix. When you customize the prefix, you'll see a dynamic preview of the copy's new title in the dialog.

The new copy of the version appears in the Overview of the space you selected.
