Is it possible to copy a book from one library into another and which is the best way to do it? I would like to have one library for "development" and one for the "hot" version of the online-help which the programmers can use for implementing into the software as we already want to publish chunks of the online-help and I do not want the users to see the "construction sites".

Answer

You can copy a Book from one library to another, but it is not easy and we do not recommend it. You can create folders with security access permissions, so you can make a development area inside the same database, which the programmers will not have access to. You can also set release states on things like styles and object templates, so that you can say what different people are allowed to do with them (like: programmers can't change styles, but you can).
