    Hi Wriostamez,

    To clarify, are you referring to this feature? If so, you simply need to be using the latest version of the SiteOrigin Page Builder to be able to use this functionality. If this isn’t the functionality you’re referring too, can you please elaborate on the functionality you’re after?

    Hi Alex! No, I mean the copy and paste function in the SiteOrigin Editor inside a Row.

    Like this:

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Wriostamez,

    Ah. Please install TinyMCE Advanced and then navigate to WP AdminSettingsTinyMCE Advanced and add a copy of the Copy and Paste buttons to your toolbars.

    I have TinyMCE Advanced installed and Copy and Paste enabled, but these features do not show in the editor.

    SiteOrigin Editor

    Thank you again!

    Hi Wriostamez,

    Please navigate to WP AdminSettingsTinyMCE Advanced and click Restore Default Settings. Re-add the copy and paste buttons to your toolbar. How does that look?

    If it doesn’t work still, Can you try disabling all non-SiteOrigin plugins (leave TinyMCE Advanced active) and see if this fixes the issue? You’ll need to clear all your caches after disabling your plugins.

    If it does fix the issue, then try re-enabling your plugins one by one until the issue comes back. This procedure will help diagnose which plugin is causing the issue.

    Once we know that, we’ll be able to look at what might be causing the conflict and either solve the problem or help you find an alternative plugin.

    If you aren’t using a SiteOrigin theme, then you can also try temporarily switching to one of the default WordPress themes to see if the issue is theme related.

    Restoring the TinyMCE Advanced settings and re-adding the buttons shows the buttons in Editor, but the actual command doesn’t work.
    I can copy and paste using Visual Editor.
    But I would like to use SiteOrigin’s Editor.
