Folio Basics

For a quick tutorial through Xtensio's editor, the folio basics will give you an overview of how to create folios and use the different building blocks in the editor - modules, canvases, sections and the toolbar.

    There are two different ways to add images to your folios. You can insert an image module via the “Add +” icon at the top left of your edit screen, the “+” icon at the top left of each canvas, or the “+” icon on the floating menu at the right of the section. On […]
