Cut, copy and paste tiles

  1. Select the tile you want to cut or copy
  2. Use the Ctrl+X (cut) or Ctrl+C (copy) keyboard shortcuts to cut or copy the tile you want to move or copy
  3. Use the Ctrl+V (paste) keyboard shortcut to paste on the same page or another page


  • You need to use the keyboard shortcuts as Google Sites does not allow the right-click/context menu to work
  • Cutting, copying and pasting works between pages
  • You can cut/copy and paste vertically grouped tiles.
  • On a Mac use the (Cmd/Command) key instead of Ctrl (Control) for the keyboard shortcuts
