Hi @NancyK22 - Thanks for the feedback! You should still be able to copy and move blocks within the email editor! The copy functionality is under the "gear" button when you hover over a block:

The 4 arrowed cursor, also highlighted above will also work to move an entire full-width section of the email up and down within the email. If you want to grab a section of the block (for example, it's 2 columns and you want to move 1 of the columns into a full width area) you can also hover on the outer edge of the block until your cursor turns into a 4 arrowed pointer and you can drag them using the pink line that shows up as a guide on where it will be placed:

I think our Knowledge article on moving blocks tends to help with this question when we receive it. Does this look like the functionality that you were requesting? Happy to help further or get more clarification on how we can improve!
