 environment managed by virtualenvwrapper or an external environment
 created elsewhere.
 
+.. warning::
+
+   Copying virtual environments is not well supported. Each virtualenv
+   has path information hard-coded into it, and there may be cases
+   where the copy code does not know to update a particular
+   file. **Use with caution.**
+
 Syntax::
 
     cpvirtualenv ENVNAME [TARGETENVNAME]
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
