I have many projects that start with the same set of parent & children tasks:

  • Do This Group Of Things
    • Setup A
    • Configure A
    • Test A
  • DO That Group Of Things
    • Setup B
    • Load B
    • Compile X
    • Test B with X

Often I will select the parent task (Do this Group Of Things) and all of its children and copy it to a new project.

When the tasks appear in the new project the parent/child relationship is gone. All of the tasks are there but there is no subtask assigned to the parent. I have to manually go in and edit each child and attach it to the proper task ID # as the parent.

I don't do this (yet) between Projects, but I found that doing a "Duplicate" of a child task doesn't inherit the Parent field value.
