Org Mode Copy Just Headers

A tip for working with org-mode. The situation is where you have a large outline but want to extract just the headers. Say you want to expand only two levels and want to extract only those headers.

The key is org-copy-visible.

Expand your tree so you only see what you want to extract. Then select the tree and execute org-copy-visible (C-c C-x v).

Then paste the extracted headers somewhere else.
