Hey guys, one thing I would find super useful is the option to clone or duplicate an entire section when using section mode. Is this a capability being considered?

Yup it’s been mentioned a few times and we are definitely considering it.
Unfortunately Sections won’t be updated until Gutenberg is out and ready to go, once that happens Sections will be getting a makeover 🙂February 27, 2018 at 4:06 pm #507410Dave
Yeah I heard Gutenberg got locked up for awhile cause of those crimes he committed. I’m excited he’ll be out and ready to go soon.January 29, 2019 at 8:02 am #795656Christian Zumbrunnen
I found a “clever” solution/workaround here: https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/copy-sections/.
Block Editor (formerly known as Gutenberg) is out now and I’m looking forward how GeneratePress will make use of it and/or advance with it’s own thing.
Still I’d like to see a way to duplicate and reuse sections.
Any news and plans if or when that could become a feature?January 29, 2019 at 8:31 am #795701TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Right now we’re developing a Section block, which will in time replace the legacy Sections, as the Classic Editor won’t be around forever. Not sure if we’ll invest in new features for legacy Sections as of right now, but we haven’t completely ruled it out.January 29, 2019 at 8:56 am #795729Christian Zumbrunnen
Thank you so much for the very quick answer.
A section block sounds great.
I absolutely understand that you might not invest too much in legacy sections.
It has been an elegant workaround for a problem WordPress should have had solved long ago.
Gutenberg is still not where it should be but it’s probably better to invest towards it then towards a “legacy” solution.January 29, 2019 at 3:14 pm #796031TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJanuary 30, 2019 at 6:11 am #796458Swizzonic AG
It would be almost perfect, if sections and Gutenberg blocks could live “side by side” within a post/page. So I could have some blocks, then a section, then some other blocks etc.
But it was not possible to use sections and the “normal” content together before, so I understand that this is technically probably not easy to accomplish.
Independently of that, it would be great if a section could be duplicated (within a post/page or even copied/moved between post/pages) as was the initial theme of this post.
Anyway. Thanks again for the very affordable generatepress pro and your incredible helpful support.
