Manuscripts is World Anvil's novel-writing software. You can use it to write, edit, and even publish your stories with a seamless integration with your world. Scenes are your Manuscript's actual text documents. If you'd like to make a copy of a scene in Manuscripts, follow these steps:

  1. Access Manuscripts by clicking Manuscripts in the left sidebar.
  2. Make sure that you are in Write mode so that you see the settings. You can check that at the very top right of your screen.
  3. Head to the cog section of the right-hand side panel.
  4. Simply click Duplicate.
  5. You have now created a copy of your scene, which will appear under the original scene on the left, with the same name followed by ''copy''.
