The Tools menu

This menu has the following choices.
- Publish layout

- Save template
Saves the layout on the current page as a template
- Duplicate layout
Copies the entire page and all metadata from the back end, including Yoast SEO data. Creates and opens a new page or post with “copy” in the title.
- Preview layout
Opens a preview screen, where you can preview as a small, medium, or large device. Click Continue editing to return to the Beaver Builder editing screen.
- Responsive editing
Edit your layout directly in a medium or small device view, as shown in this screenshot. Click Exit to return to large screen editing.
Display the previously published revisions available to revert to. The number of revisions available is displayed in brackets. This menu item uses the core WordPress revision feature but makes it more convenient to view and access revisions. See this article for more information.
Note: Only published pages count as revisions. Saved drafts of pages are not available as revisions. See the Related Article below for more details about how to revert to previous versions.
- Global settings
- Change UI brightness
This option is a toggle that changes the UI skin from light (default) to dark and back.

Be careful to close this new tab to return to your original Beaver Builder layout to ensure that any editing changes don’t get lost.
