Transfer a schematic between projects

I have created a schematic in a project using Kicad version 5.1.8, that I would like to use as a starting point in a revised and expanded project. How do I transfer the original schematic into the new revised project?

I would simply start with:

  1. Create new project.
  2. Exit KiCad.
  3. Copy existing schematic file to new project.
  4. Give the new copy the name of the project.
  5. Open KiCad / Eeschema.
  6. Check if it works.
  7. Fix errors.

I just tried this and it seems to work. If your old schematic uses custom libraries, you have to fix those manually.
