Add "Save As" option
If I want to experiment with my project without overwriting the original, or if I want to use it as a template for additional videos, I can't do that because it automatically saves my changes.
Please add a "Save As" option, or an option in "Your Projects" to be able to make a copy of the selected project.

I previously used iMovie but moved to pc. It was much easier to make multiple videos with same assets.

Where is the "Save As" button and why does it not leave the original intact?
Where are the files being saved to? Why can't we choose location to save to?
We are giving you constructive feedback; at the very least we should get to work with the full feature Beta product
enable the Save as.. function. I usually have a basic idea and then I change it depending on the social media platform.
Thanks for your feedback! We're exploring ways to best handle educational workflows.
Appreciate you writing in.
I would like to be able to save the project as a file in case I need to share a project with other to work on it. Currently there's no place to access the file and share it with someone else unless you open it in Adobe Premier and save it as a premier file.
Very much need this. Instagram videos are under 1 minute. I do not want to destroy my work or start all over. Both bad options.
I AGREE. WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO DUPLICATE PROJECTS
The problem is the file structure system. Let's say, for example, I have a YouTube channel and I want to pump out content. And that content has branded graphics and music which I re-use for every video I make. It would be great if I had all of that contained in a 'template' timeline ready to go so I can avoid having to re-create from the timeline. (It really sucks to build the same title sequence for every video I make in the series)
When I open the app, I immediately see all of my videos I'm working on. These are referred to as PROJECTS. It seems I cannot duplicate those PROJECTS to keep a said 'template' ready to go.
as @BrightestBulb mentioned, you can duplicate SEQUENCES from within the PROJECT. But you can't seem to move a sequence from one project to another.
You could just have one PROJECT for your YouTube channel, I suppose, but then you can't build a file structure with bins within the PROJECT to organize, which makes it impractical.
I am excited to see this platform working across my devices. I can see its going to be tricky for Adobe: balancing speed and ease of use, with integration of powerful features we have come to expect from all of your Pro apps. But a few of these top feature requests seem important. Keep at it Adobe!
@Brightest Bulb - How? How do I duplicate timelines?

I agrea 100% percent, nothing like feeling that you lost an hour or two's work, only to find it really was responding, it was just so slow the system thought it died.

You can make duplicate timelines and rename them in the project window.
I work in a school where students use public computers with the enterprise version of Adobe installed. Most of the students don't have Adobe accounts. It would be nice if there were a way to save a project file (or something similar) so students without Adobe CC accounts could save their works in progress.
