Any way to copy folds to a copied file?

Example: file1 has several folds, now I create a new file cp file2 newfile. newfile doesn't have folds that I had created in vim, of course it won't as cp and vim are different commands.

Any way to copy folds of file1 to newfile?

  • mkview and loadview are for saving and loading folds of one file. Here, my question is to copy fold of one file to other file.

  • mkview creates a file in viewdir which identifies the folds (among other things) of a specific view. What you can do is load this file from another view
