Utilizing the Copy Style and Copy Paste options that allow you to duplicate WordPress pages posts, articles or even a part of them as well as copy and paste styles, or even copy elements from one site to another.
If you’ve made WordPress websites previously, you’re aware that the process involves significant amounts in repetitive tasks. When creating a set of icons boxes, for instance you must duplicate the design process to design each one of the icon boxes.
This isn’t the best or ideal method, clearly.
Whatever web page you’re currently building it is likely that you will require the use of the same styles across multiple areas. Wouldn’t you love it to be able to extract a style from one widget and apply it to a different one?

- Paste Style
