The recent Page Builder 2.5 update added a huge feature that I’m excited to share with you – the ability to copy and paste rows and widgets. It will significantly reduce the amount of time it takes you to build new Page Builder pages.
It’s always been our goal to make Page Builder fast, and we feel like the admin interface is the best place to give you this raw speed. Frontend editors are great! Page Builder has its own Live Editor, which we’re aiming to improve a lot over the next few releases, but the admin interface is where you can construct pages in absolute record time. This is especially true if you’re a seasoned Page Builder user.
Copy-paste stays true to our goal of the being the best admin editing interface.
You can now right-click anywhere in the Page Builder interface to bring up the contextual menu and then copy either the row or the widget you’re hovering over.
Next head on over to the page where you want to paste the row or widget and right click again. You’ll find the option to paste rows in the Row Action section, and widget pasting is in the Cell Actions section because you’re technically pasting the widget to a cell.
Because of how browsers handle clipboard access, we’re using browser storage for this feature. This means you can only copy and paste items within a single domain. But you can freely paste across different page, post types and even different WordPress sites on the same domain.
And that’s Copy Paste. I hope you enjoy the page building speed that this feature brings.
