Copy entire page from one app to another app

I have a page with multiple pop-ups and dozens of groups and controls. I want to copy the page including all controls and paste it into another app. I load the page in the first app, click Edit, click Select All, click Copy with workflows, go to the new app, create the page, click Edit, click Paste with workflows. But, not all the controls are copied in particular a bunch of control on a particular pop-up. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help.

I’ve discovered Select All/Copy doesn’t copy pop-ups. The page I’m trying to copy has nine. None were copied.

I reported this to Bubble. Here is the relevant portion of their reply:
Using Select All will only select the elements that are visible on the page. This means that if you have hidden elements, like popups, that are not nested in another element, but are at page level, they will not get included with the select all. We allow copying elements from app to app, but the entire page itself with all elements is not possible. What we have seen some users do is nest all elements on the page in a group and the select the outer most group to copy to the other app.

This is what I was going to suggest when I read your initial post.

Having a group that contains all the controls for the entire page sounds like a basic “good practice”. To test it out, I:
created a blank test page
created a group on that test page
clicked on popup
Tried to create a popup in the group but the group’s borders don’t go red indicating it isn’t selected. If I create the popup, it is located on the page, not in the group based on the info in the Elements tree.

If I click on text, button, or image and locate the cursor in the group, the group is highlighted in red and the control is created in the group.

What am I missing?

I think that popups can’t be nested in groups but belong to the top page.
