A layout is made up of blocks.

In Grid Mode, blocks have a blue border. When the user hover the pointer over the block, its edges glow, and a tool tip appears, displaying information about the block.
In Design Mode, blocks limits are not perceptible but the content to be styled.

Using the Blocks

  • To create a block click and drag on the grid.
    Alternatively, add blocks using cloning, presets, or shared layouts,
  • Move a block by clicking inside it and dragging it to the new position.
  • Change a block’s type by right-clicking the block, clicking Switch Block Type, and clicking the new type in the options panel.
  • Delete a block by right-clicking the block and then clicking Delete Block.


Blocks can’t overlap each other in Grid Mode.
It is a requirement to assign a block type at first, to define the content and the block options available.(content blocks, navigation blocks, widget blocks, etc.)

By  right-clicking a Block, the Open  Block Options will appear, and it will display a panel with further information for additional configurations.
