Fusion Builder Right Click Options

06/08/2019

An small, but amazing feature, that was added in Avada 5.6, is the ability to manage your Fusion Builder Elements, Columns, and Containers through a right click menu.

When you right click within the Fusion Builder, or within the Fusion Builder Live Editor, a contextual menu appears, with options for you to edit, clone, save, remove, copy, and paste elements. This provides easier element interactions and improves your workflow efficiency. Continue reading below to know more about the options available in the Fusion Builder right click feature.

Right Click Feature Menus

The Fusion Builder right click feature gives you largely common choices for the various assets. The main differences are the paste options for Elements vs. Columns vs. Containers. Please see below examples of what the menu looks like, and the list of the options available, when you right click on Containers, Columns, or Elements.

Element Library Right Click Options

There are also right click options in the Fusion Builder Library Edit Screens. The Fusion Builder Library allows you to save and redeploy any elements, columns or containers, and even save pages as templates. Read more about the Fusion Builder Library here.

If you are editing a saved library item, you will also have right click menus. If you right click on the same element type that it has been saved as, (e.g. right clicking on an element if the library type is for element) then it will only show Edit and Copy options. Other options such as Clone, Save, Remove, and Paste will be available if for example you right click on an element in a column or container library type.
