Cloning a folder means that you recreate a Project Map folder inside the View Map.
Consequently, for each new viewpoint you create in the Project Map, a counterpart new view will be created in its cloned folder in the View Map.
For example, if you have cloned the Project Map’s Stories folder, then the cloned folder in View Map will always show all Stories of the Project, even new ones added after the creation of the clone folder.
The Clone a Folder command is available in the Navigator Palette or Organizer’s View Map (not in the Pop-up Navigator).

The resulting cloned folder in the View Map is identified by the “clone” folder icon.
