How to Add an Element

You can add elements to your canvas in three ways:

  1. The first method is to select where you want to place your element and click on the element you want to add from the Elements Panel.
  2. The second method is to click and drag the element from the Elements Panel and place it where you want on the canvas.
  3. Lastly, you can also drag the elements from the Elements Panel to the Layers Panel and place them where you want from there.

How to Duplicate the Style of an Element

To maintain consistency and save time, you can duplicate the style settings of an element. Follow these steps:

  1. Select your element and open the Class Manager section in the Style Panel.
  2. Click on the field and create a new sub-class by typing a unique name.
  3. Select a different element of the same type and add the sub-class you created.
  4. Elements with this sub-class will adopt the same style settings.
  5. Any changes made to one element with this sub-class will update all instances with the same sub-class.

For more details on this feature, refer to our documentation on Class Manager.

How to Reuse Elements

Using Symbols, you can easily reuse elements or groups of elements with all their customizations intact. To convert an element or group of elements into a Symbol:

  1. Select the element or wrapper element (if multiple elements) and go to Layers > Symbols.
  2. Click on Create New Symbol, choose a Category and Name for the Symbol, and hit Create.
  3. Now, your element(s) become a Symbol that you can repeatedly use on any page.
  4. Editing the main instance of the Symbol from the Symbols Panel will update all other instances.
