The new Elementor 2.1 includes solutions to many requests that our users have sent to us over time. 

Right Click

Starting from Elementor Version 2.1, we transferred all of our editing controls to a new context menu, that appears when you Right Click a Page/Section/Column/Widget handle.

Copy/Paste

When you  Right Click you’ll find the Copy and Paste functions. There are three different types of Copy/Paste:

Copy/Paste Elements - Now you can simply Copy an element (Widget, Column or Section) and Paste it anywhere on the page. When pasting on top of a widget, the pasted element will be placed below it.

Tip: Use the shortcut CTRL/CMD + C, and then CTRL/CMD + V, to copy and paste elements.

Copy/Paste Element Style - With Paste Style, you can paste the style of any element you copy (Widget, Column or Section), then apply it on any other Widget, Column or Section.

Copy/Paste Between Pages - Copy Paste and Copy Style actually work between pages! You can Copy any Widget, Column or Section, and Paste it on a different page on your site.

Reset Style - You can easily return to the default style settings of every element by right clicking and choosing Reset Style.
