We have received a few questions from users if Piktochart has a feature that allow users to copy specific blocks and paste it on another visual. For example: copy Block 1 from visual A and place it in visual B.
At the moment Piktochart does not have a feature for this action, but we can offer a workaround to copy objects on a single block and paste it on a different visual. To do this, you will need to open your files (visual A and B) on two separate tabs on your browser.
On the visual you wish to copy, click on the block to select it, and then press CTRL + A (or CMD + A for Mac users) to select all objects on the selected block. You should be able to see a large square box surrounding the objects on the block, and several square shaped dotted lines for each object. This indicates that all of the objects are selected.
After selecting all objects on the block, press CTRL + C (or CMD + C for Mac users) to copy it.
Next, go to the visual you wish to paste the object. You may create a new block or click to select an existing block. In this example, we will click the '+' button to create a new block.
Press CTRL + V (or CMD + V for Mac users) to paste all objects onto the block. All objects should have the same position from the block you have copied. You can move the objects together as a group by dragging it around.
You may want to have a part of your new background to be the same color as your block from the original visual. To mimic your old background color, you can add a rectangle shape (from Graphics> Icons) to your canvas that is the same color as the background from the other canvas. Then, using the arrange tools, use the “send to back” option so that the shape acts as a background shape. You can use the "Lock" tool to lock your background in place.
