Once you’ve chosen the preferred layout for your page and publish it on your page, you can start editing it with all of the Editing tools provided by Elementor. Each page in Elementor consist of sections. You spot them by the blue outlined border. Inside the sections, you have columns that you can identify by their black dotted lines. Inside the columns, you have different widgets that hold the elements and information on your page.
The great thing about Elementor’s pages is that you can move any element around and you can also use the duplicate button to duplicate it if you need to. You can do the same with the columns, going to the Column’s handler, click Duplicate, and then drag and drop wherever you want it to appear. You can also drag and drop columns to different sections. The same thing applies to widgets as well.
