Wix TIPs: Avoid loosing items when editing - A top Wix Tip

Here is my first Wix Tip

Ok so we all know that right now Wix has no undo option, bummer if you loose all your work during an edit.

Ok so here is a simple workaround that will minimise the damage, if your like me and are forever forgeting to save or if your just trying out a change and dont want to over write something else get into the habit of using the rightclick > copy command the page elements you are about to edit.

That way if you mess up you can just rightclick > paste the items back in.

I wanted to add another tip:
When trying a major change I recommend duplicating the page.
Click "Page Manager",
Mouse over the icon of the page,
Click on the double square icon.
You will get a replica of the page.
