Does "Paste" create a copy that I can edit without changing the original?

I want to re-use existing content in a new course but I need to make some edits. I don’t want to change the original course.

If I use “Paste” and then make changes, will those changes apply to just my course or to everywhere that the components are used?

Welcome and hello!

You’re absolutely right. Pasting creates an exact copy of the component/block/article/page you choose but then that copy stands alone and if you change that new instance of it it only changes in the place you edit, not in the original place.

Hope that helps!


this terrified me slightly as was convinced I had overwritten past pages. works so really well to use for generic headings and endings e.g. Objectives and Summary. keep the titles the same but then just change the body.
