How to duplicate / copy a container?


It's common for email designs to contain several blocks that have the same base in terms of their settings: same styles, distribution and format.


When working on Modern Editor, you can duplicate containers at any time. This is really useful when containers have a repeating format throughout the design. A good example of this would be a container that holds an image block and text block, usually followed by a button. Duplicating a container will save time building your design and will further ensure styles are the same.


Hover over the block you want to duplicate, then right-click and select Duplicate.


The same can be applied for any block type that you choose. Doing things at a container level will duplicate all the blocks inside it.

  1. One time event: You can duplicate an entire template and use this as a starting point for your new design. Doing so will conserve the original template's styles. Review our article on how to duplicate or copy an email design.
  2. Recurring: If you plan to use a particular design as your starting point, whether it be for the design itself or for the specific settings in the stylesheet, you can create a custom starter email. Review our article on how to create, use, edit/delete a custom starter email.
