Editor X Essentials

Sections.

Sections are large containers that act as the building blocks of each page. By default, they span the width of the browser, and you can set the height as you wish.

Adding sections.

You can have as many sections as you want on each page. Add an empty section by selecting a section and clicking the + icon. You can also choose from tons of pre-designed sections inside the Add panel.

Moving sections.

To reorder sections, select a section and from the 3 dots on the floating action bar, choose Move Up or Move Down. You can also reorder sections from the Layers panel.
