Live Copy Hidden Feature – The Magic Copy
The plugin for Elementor copy section to another website, the Live Copy Paste addon can do more than just let you copy web design from the editor page. There is another feature that enables a frontend copy interface to let you steal designs from another website without peeking into the backend of theirs.
That is the Magic Copy option. When your target website has this option enabled, you will be able to copy the web design from the site’s front end. Here, we are taking the Element Pack website as the reference site or the target website.
Let’s see how.
Step-1: Enable the Magic Copy Option
Same as before, go into the site settings on your target website and enable the Magic Copy switcher from there. It’s the 2nd sub-section under the Live Copy Paste option.

Just for you, all these templates have the Live Copy function enabled so you can grab the templates anytime you want.
Once you find your template, go ahead and click on the quick view button to see the whole page in detail.
Step-4: Use the Magic Copy button
Now that you are viewing the full page template, you will see a floating button saying Live Copy on every section of the template page.
Clicking on the button will activate a loading sequence that indicates that all assets belonging to that particular section are being copied.
Step-5: Live Paste the copied section
Now go back to your previous domain where you will import the designs. Then create a section and right-click on the section settings icon. From the list, select the Live Paste option.
Once you do that, you will see the copied design being pasted on the current page with all settings and media preserved. From this point on, you can customize the imported design to make unique pages easily.
