What are elements?
Elements are the content that you can add to a column. Elements like titles, paragraph text, buttons, forms, and hotspots can be dragged and dropped into any of your columns. You can find all available elements from the Element button in the left sidebar.
Multiple elements can be added to one column. However, elements can't be placed on top of each other.
