Copy/Paste

Apart from Clone option, Visual Composer Website Builder has the option to copy any element (row, column, regular elements) in your layout and paste it anywhere. Depending on the element you copy you can paste it into several places:

  • Elements can be pasted into columns
  • Columns can be pasted into rows
  • Rows can be pasted after rows or inside rows

The paste control will be activated/deactivated depending on the element you are copying to help you out.
