How to create reusable components in Bubble.io?

Creating reusable components in Bubble.io is a way to build elements that you can use across various parts of your application. Reusable components can be anything from navigation bars, footers, to complex groups of elements with associated workflows. To create reusable components in Bubble.io, follow these steps:

Step 1:
Open the page navigation menu by clicking on the icon in the upper left corner of the Bubble editor.

Step 2:
Scroll down to the 'Reusable elements' section within the page menu.

Step 3:
Click the 'Add a new reusable element' button to start creating a new blank reusable element.

Alternatively, if you already have elements in your design that you wish to convert into a reusable component:

Step A:
Navigate to the element or group of elements on your page that you want to convert into a reusable component.

Step B:
Select the element(s) by clicking on them. To select multiple elements at once, hold down the 'Shift' key and click on each element.

Step C:
Once selected, right-click on an element or go to the 'Edit' menu at the top of the screen.

Step D:
Choose 'Convert to a reusable element' from the menu that appears.

After completing these steps, the selected elements will be converted into a reusable component, and you will be automatically taken to the editor for this new component. Inside this editor, you can modify the reusable element and any workflows associated with it.

Remember, when converting existing elements into a reusable component, any workflows linked to the selected elements may need adjustments if they lose access to references outside of the reusable element. Make sure to inspect and update any workflows to ensure they function correctly within the context of the reusable component.
