  • To add new items to your project, use the toolbar on the left of the editor. Click the buttons (e.g., Add text) to see the available options under each category. Then, to add an item to the canvas, either hover over it and click Insert or drag-and-drop it onto the canvas.
  • The canvas of your project is located in the middle of the editor. Here, you can move and layer the objects and resize them, as well as resize the canvas and do much more. Learn more in the General settings section of the knowledge base.
  • You can customize your content from the settings panel on the right. It adapts to the element you select on the canvase.g., if you click on a chart, the chart's settings will appear, or if you click somewhere on the canvas, you'll be able to access the project's main settings and edit the background.
