Tinderbox resection

What is the best practice for splitting a Tinderbox file into smaller Tinderboxlings?

I have made the mistake of trying to put too much into a single file, and it is kind of unwieldy now - I’d like to move a chunk out into a new file. Any advice?

Moving notes from one document to another can be fraught due to the connections between notes, prototypes, templates, user attributes, stamps, rules, agents, etc. etc.

It’s much simpler, I find, to duplicate the document as many times as you wish, and delete a chunk of notes from each of the dupes until you have the right collections of notes in each document.

Totally concur with @PaulWalters. I dupe and delete content if splitting a document of any size/maturity. Tip, good idea to totally rename the copies before starting the delete as I can admit to messing up once by failing to do that and forgetting which was the old doc and which the new; I had back-ups but initial renaming would have saved a short period of discomfort!
