Adding Elements to your website couldn't be easier! Clicking the Add tab on the side bar in the editor opens a list of the elements available to you. When you choose an element from this list it becomes locked to your mouse cursor, simply move your mouse to where you want the element on your web page and click to release it there.
Some elements in the Add tab have a few options before you can drop them on your page, for instance, images require first that you select an image from the image library.

When an element is clicked on it becomes selected, any element showing a containing box around it is currently selected as seen in the image below.
A selected element will show a selection bar above it and the tools palette, most likely on the right hand side of the page. The selection bar will display the type of element selected, in the above example 'Icon', the bar always has the same options regardless of the element type though. So from left to right it has a duplicate button, arrows to move the element either forwards or backwards from a layering perspective, a link button for controlling where the elements links to when clicked, then finally a delete button.
The tools palette is the large white box seen at the right of the screen on the screenshot above. This will always look similar regardless of the element type selected, again though it displays the type of icon selected at the top. Within the Settings, Style and Size & Position menus you can define properties for the element such as colour, border width, opacity, padding and much more.
