Elementor is an easy-to-use and drag-and-drop page builder theme that everyone can use with ease.
The feature it gives to be able to save your work or page as a template in the Elementor library for future use is such a time saver.
Elementor builder plugin gave you the option to save your page as a template. The saved templates can be used over and over again for as long as you want. This is most helpful for writing your articles where you don’t need to set the font, color, size, etc. each time you write a new post that save your time.
Of course, you can click the duplicate page option but then it won’t be saved for future use.
Step-By-Step guide on how you can save an Elementor page as a template For Future Use
First thing first. Go to your WordPress dashboard > Plugins > Add New.
You can type in ‘Elementor’ in the search button or directly download Elementor here.
Then, go to Plugins > Installed Plugins > Elementor > Activate.
Once you activate the Elementor plugin, go to Post > Add New > Select Edit With Elementor.
You will then see a page that opened in Elementor.
Select the ‘+’ icon and you will be asked to select the page structure for your content.
Select an option, whether you want your content in one column or two or more. It’s your choice.
Once you are done with your selection of the column, a rectangular box will open.
You can click the square dotted icon at the top right as shown in the image and select the text editor or image box.
Or you can just click on the ‘+’ icon or anywhere on the blue button and the editor dropdown will show the same.
Start writing your content. After you finish writing, go to the ‘Style’ option.
You can change the Alignment to the centre or justify or just leave it at the default setting which is the left alignment.
Change the text color if you want to.
Then, to change the font, select the pencil icon in the typography.
You will be able to see the dropdown for changing the font style, text size, line space. Select your desired options.
Once you are done with that, select the Advanced button.
You will see two options here.
One is the margin. Which will work on the outside border of your content box. You can just leave it as it is.
The second one is Padding. This works on the inside of the content box.
These two options are simply to widen the gap between the words and the border or corner.
One thing you should keep in mind is that on the right side there is a link icon.
This means if you put in any number there will be padding on the top, right, bottom, and left with the same digits you have entered. They are linked by default.
What you have to do is click on the link icon. Then, you will be able to put padding individually.
This padding doesn’t matter much when you view your content on a desktop or laptop.
However, when you see it in mobile view, you will notice that your content spreads to both the left and right corners and it looks odd.
What you have to do is put some padding on the left and right sides. You can put it between 10 – 20. While some put 20, I prefer 10.
Optimize your post for Mobile use.
This is very important as more and more people prefer to use their smartphones to browse the internet.
When you click on the Desktop icon, you will see mobile option.
Select the mobile version, change the font size from say like 25px to 16px or 18px.
Then click on the UPDATE button.
In fact, you must occasionally hit the update button so that your work will be saved in case of any sudden disruption like a power cut or your laptop running out of battery.
Now, make a Right Click on the ‘+ Icon’ and a dropdown will show with the option ‘Save As Template’. Select the save as option.
You will be taken to the Elementor library. Name your template according to your work like ‘content’, or any name to which it is related.
Then click the ‘Save’ button. And your work is saved as a template. You will see it in ‘My Templates’ section.
Once you are done with that, right-click on the + icon and select Duplicate.
Select and delete everything. The font or whatever setting you made will not be deleted.
Then, right-click on the + icon again and select the ‘Save as template’ option, and name it.
That means you are saving an empty text box but the settings intact.
