  9. Copy the text and image for duplicate layouts
    Since this layout has a duplicate strip, you will want to copy the custom text and graphic under the duplicate strip. Hold the shift key while clicking on the items you want to copy. Next press ctrl-C to copy the items to the clipboard, and then ctrl-V to paste the copied items. On Mac, use command instead on ctrl.
