I really like the section tool. I often need to copy one section with its content and parameters and paste it to another web-page. Is there any simple way to do it?
It is a little hard to do if you have to paste a section on more than 10 pages.

Not currently unfortunately.
Sections won’t be getting any improvements with the emergence of Gutenberg editor.
We are actively working on a section-like block editor and will definitely consider adding duplicate option.
Let me know if this helps 🙂August 8, 2019 at 1:29 pm #979372Dmitry
Thanks, Leo. Does it mean that soon GP will remove sections tool in one of new updates?
P.S. Me and plenty of users don’t like G-berg … and always disable it.August 8, 2019 at 4:53 pm #979431LeoStaffCustomer Support
No we won’t be removing sections – it just won’t get any new features.
I’ll admit that Gutenberg takes a bit to get used to but Tom, David and myself all like it (especially with the new sections-like plugin).August 9, 2019 at 3:08 am #979673Dmitry
Ok) Just think about 2 features for sections:
1. Field “Preferences Id” – just to input already existing section preferences
2. Field “Content Id” – just to use already existing section contentAugust 9, 2019 at 4:14 am #979715DavidStaffCustomer Support
my personal method when using Sections is to create a draft page, design out all of the Sections i would need for my pages, create multiple versions of a section if i need to use it more than once on a page.
Then use the Duplicate Post plugin to create a new Draft each time i want to create a page with Sections. Edit/delete on the new page as necessary.
For global content that may get updated regularly i would use hooks or widgets for this.
This is one are where Gutenberg has got it right with Re-usable blocks so common incontent elements can be updated from one place.August 9, 2019 at 5:08 am #979752Dmitry
Thanks, David! Nice idea!
What hooks/widgets do you use to insert global content into sections?August 9, 2019 at 5:10 am #979753DavidStaffCustomer SupportAugust 9, 2019 at 5:54 am #979774Dmitry
