Why doesn't Notion duplicate it the right way?

Hi! I'm new to Notion and I'm trying to figure out how to use it, but I've ran into some trouble. I've rearranged 7 columns, one for each day of the week, vertically, with 3 at the top and 4 at the bottom. However, when I try to duplicate it, all the columns end up horizontally under each other and I cannot figure out what's wrong. I don't know if it makes a difference, but I used someone else's template and rearranged their columns the way I wanted them. In other words I have not created everything from scratch, so maybe that's messing with it? Does anyone have a solution to this? I've searched the web but can't find anything :/

Thank you in advance!

I believe that you are creating a new view for the actual database and there are different types of views.

1- Each view from the original database can have a different layout and different position and visibility for properties (columns).

2- Each view layout shows the information in a completely different way. (table, gallery, list, calendar, etc...)

At the top right of the database, there is a + sign to add more views in the same place.

When you hover over the database top, 6 dots appear and clicking there allows you to duplicate the database.

After you duplicate the database or creating a new view, you have to edit the layout for it (Click Table Title and select Edit View) and select "Table".

Keep in mind that you can have for example 6 table views and you can hide and arrange columns differently in each one of them, even when all of them come from the same original database and have the same information.

Hope that helps.
