    Might seem like a bit of a dumb question but there's no "Save Project As" option, so I was wondering the proper process of saving a project to an external hard drive. Do I just copy the project from Documents and paste in the hard drive? Will that copy all project files AND the settings?

    That's what I do and have never had any issues when using them.

    Alrighty

    I was just reading some instances of where people exporting their packages didn't have all of their settings properly transferred, didn't know if straight up copying projects had the same issue.

    just as a note,

    you will never find "Save Project AS" in any other applications except if that application calls one file a project.

    All the settings for a project are contained in the project folder. If you copy everything in the folder then you've 100% duplicated the project.
