Same child page assigned to multiple parents page

While creating a page, is there a way to assign that page to multiple parents? Right now I can click on the location button  and move the page to a different parent, but I am wondering if there is an easy way to assign that page so that it shows up for multiple parents? Ideally it would be a child for two parents before the page creation is complete.

I know I can use the include page macro, but that first creating a page that needs to be in two locations. Once created create a new page in a new location and use the include page macro. I am looking for a solution where I can assign the same page to two locations before the page is completed.

A page can have only one parent. If you do not like the include page macro, use labels and use the 'content by label' macro. That will dynamically populate both pages as soon as a page is created with the specific label. You just need to remember to add the label on the child page.

You can, of course, create a template with that label and use the template if this is a frequent task.
