Copying and pasting a page in Webflow can be a useful time-saving technique, especially when you want to duplicate the structure and design of an existing page. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to copy and paste a page in Webflow.
Step 1: Open the Designer
To begin, open your Webflow project and navigate to the Designer. This is where you can access and modify all aspects of your website’s design.
Step 2: Select the Page
In the Designer, locate the page that you want to copy. Click on its name in the Pages panel on the left-hand side of the screen. This will open up that specific page for editing.
Step 3: Copy the Page
Once you are on the desired page, use your keyboard shortcuts or right-click on any empty space within the canvas area. From the context menu, select “Copy” or use “Ctrl+C” (Windows) or “Cmd+C” (Mac) as shortcuts.
Step 4: Create a New Page
Next, navigate back to your Pages panel by clicking on the arrow icon at the top-left corner of your screen. This will take you back to where you can see all of your website’s pages.
Note: If you wish to paste this copied page within an existing folder or under another parent page, make sure to open that folder or parent page before proceeding with Step 5.
Step 5: Paste the Copied Page
In your Pages panel, right-click on an empty space where you want to insert this copied page. From the context menu that appears, select “Paste” or use “Ctrl+V” (Windows) or “Cmd+V” (Mac) as shortcuts.
Tip: If you want the copied page to be placed at a specific position within your website’s hierarchy, you can also right-click on an existing page and choose “Paste as sibling” or “Paste as child”. This will determine whether the copied page is inserted at the same level or nested under the selected page, respectively.
Step 6: Customize the Copied Page
Once you have pasted the page, you can rename it to give it a unique name that fits its purpose. To do this, simply double-click on the new page’s name in the Pages panel and type in a new name.
Note: Remember to customize any other elements or settings on this copied page that you want to differentiate from the original version. This could include modifying text, images, styles, interactions, or any other design components.
Step 7: Save and Publish
After making all necessary modifications to your newly copied and customized page, save your changes by clicking on the “Save” button at the top-right corner of the Designer. Once saved, you can preview your website by clicking on the eye icon next to the save button. If everything looks as expected, publish your site for these changes to go live.
Congratulations! You have successfully copied and pasted a page in Webflow. This technique can be incredibly handy when creating multiple pages with similar layouts or structures without having to start from scratch each time.
Note: Keep in mind that copying and pasting a page only duplicates its structure and design elements. It does not copy any dynamic content or CMS collections associated with that page. If you need to copy those elements as well, additional steps may be required.
