Many thanks to everyone who has participated over the years and we look forward to unveiling a new peer-to-peer support system soon!
I understand and agree fully with your point. This would be a good feature to have and I hope we can implement it in future.
In the meantime here is something that can help:
1) Create a basic "template" page with all the repeatable elements you want.
2) When you create it, set it not to show in the main menu of your site.
3) Whenever you add a new page to your site, go to your template page and select "save page as" on the page tab.
You will then have a new page with just the repeatable elements and you can add your new content to that page.
This doesn't help if you want to go and change a repeatable element on your existing page, but at least it speeds up the creation of new pages.
Also note that the footer can be set across your whole site for the new style "Super Flat."
