If you're working with the book, you may want to finalize the project name or make a second copy, perhaps, you want to make a few tweaks, swapping out a few photos to customize the book to give to another person. That's really easy. I am going to go ahead here back to my Projects Library and see the book. If I right-click on the Book, I could choose to Duplicate it. This will make a second copy. Now, exiting the Full Screen Mode by pressing Escape (Esc) is also another way to see your Projects listed.
