Copy and Save Webparts
I have a set of quick links that I would like to be able to copy and reuse in other Modern UI pages. It would be great to be able to save and reuse webparts. Alternatively, it would be great to be able to design webparts (link this quick links web part) that could be shared and displayed on multiple pages in a site collection.
In "classic" SharePoint, team sites had a "Links" list that served a similar function. It's still available to add to a site as an "app" and you can add it to a page using the List view web part, but there's no (easy, convenient) way to make it look good. I suppose you could use view formatting, but that's not always easy or convenient.
It would be great to have it function similarly to a List in that you can make changes and it will make them across all of the pages Quick Links is available. Thank you for your consideration.

This would be very useful functionality.
Truly! What a pain to create a set of links on one modern page and then have to re-create it in order to have it on another page. Really need a data-driven Quick Links web part where we can add/remove/edit a link in the dataset and each page with the Quick Links using that dataset is automatically updated.
This would be very useful.

Microsoft have added the ability to duplicate a web part, e.g the Quick Links, which is less useful than the ability to copy it to a different page.

Strongly agree especially with the ability to design webparts/create some kind of webpart template. Currently it's really annoying and time consuming if you need to update multiple page types with the same webpart. I'd like to be able to make changes to just one webpart to keep it consistent without having to do so in multiple locations.
