Abstract

Disclosed is a method to file a new document into the library with document-descriptors copied from an existing document. A document in the library has many data areas associated with it such as content, descriptors, relationships and access criteria. A user may want to file a new document into the library with new content, relationships and access, but copy the descriptors from an existing document in the library.
