Duplicating Columns block elements
You can duplicate any of the block’s elements to create space for more features or services. Hover over the element you wish to duplicate and click on the Duplicate icon that looks like two sheets of paper.
The identical element will appear to the right of the original element.

You can move columns across the block, for example, if you want to present certain services or features more prominently. To move the block element do the following:
- Hover over the element you want to move and click on the “crossed arrows” Move icon.
- Grab the element and drag it where you want it to appear.
- Release and the blocks will rearrange.
If you want to delete any element of the Columns block, you can easily do this by hovering over the element and clicking on the “trash can” Delete icon.
This action can be reversed by pressing Undo or Ctrl-Z.
Customizing block icons
You can customize any icon that appears in the Columns block. Here’s how you do that:
You can link buttons to another page of your website, for example, the Contact us page or a landing page with your offer. You can also link the buttons to a page on another website or enable users to send an email from this page. To learn more about how to customize buttons, read this article.
If you delete a block by accident and you are still editing the page, click the Undo button in the top right corner. This undoes the last change you have made. If the block you deleted was already on the live page, it'll still be there when you cancel your changes.
