Upfront - Spirit: Adding global footer to page, etc.

I'm liking what I'm seeing of upfront, but I keep running into roadblocks that keep me from pushing it out to my clients.

First, I'm trying to add the global footer to other pages that don't have it yet. I've tried creating a region and naming it "Footer" but it doesn't pull the design I've created on another page and set as global.

Second, I don't understand why Responsive mode doesn't keep color/size already created. Do I need to go through each Responsive setting and redesign the site every time?
