Copy Document

Copy Document is a preset from the Essentials bundle. It allows you to duplicate your open document, modifying its name and size. You can also choose whether to reduce the layers in the document or convert them to a smart object.

Basic Adjustments


You can change the size of the duplicated document. There are relative (percent) and absolute (pixel) values. If you do not want to change the document size, you can simply set the slider to 100%.

Reference edge

For pixel values, you can specify whether the pixel slider should refer to the long edge (length) or short edge (width) of the document.

Slider for document size

Depending on the unit, you can define relative values ​​between 1% and 100% or absolute values ​​between 1 pixel and the current document size. The absolute values ​​refer to the reference edge.
