  2. Click Actions (...) > Edit code on the duplicated, unpublished theme.

  3. In the Layouts folder, find and click on the index.json (home page) file.

  4. Click to open the raw code for the layouts from one of the demos above.

    The template code does not include demo store content or images.

  5. Select all the template code and copy it to your clipboard.

    You can use keyboard shortcuts to Select all (ctrl-a or cmd-a) and copy (ctrl-c or cmd-c).

  6. Select all of the current code in the index.json file and paste the new code to replace it.

    You can use keyboard shortcuts for Select all (ctrl-a or cmd-a) and paste (ctrl-v or cmd-v).
