Copy and Paste
“Copy and Paste” are essential tools to maximizing productivity when producing content on computers, and Squarespace makes this task even simpler with its built-in features for moving content blocks around your site.
To copy a section, simply select it and click on the “Copy” button in the toolbar. When on the page where you would like to paste it, go back and click “Paste”, whereupon your content will be inserted at cursor position.

Squarespace’s duplication feature makes it easy to duplicate pages, sections, blocks and entire websites with all their original settings and content intact.

For example, if one product page is receiving high traffic and conversions, duplicating it might provide the chance to test out different marketing strategies without impacting existing efforts.
Move Up/Move Down
