Working with modules

Add content to your folios with modules. Move and resize, add a background image or color, duplicate, share, export or delete.

Think of modules as a single moveable unit of your folio. You can adjust their size, customize their color, and stack them within canvases.

There are a few different ways to add modules to your folio.

  1. Click the ‘Add +’ button at the top left of your edit screen. This will add the module to the bottom of your folio.
  2. Select the ‘+’ icon on the floating menu at the right of each section. This will add the module to the bottom of that section.
  3. Choose the ‘+’ icon at the top left of a canvas. This will add the module inside the canvas and allow you to stack modules.

All Together Now

Now put these tips all together! Our folios are meant to be responsive web pages. You may have noticed that our modules automatically float slightly up and left, this is to make them fit on all screen sizes.

And one of the best features of modules is that they stack! You can compose as many as you’d like in a blank canvas and different sections in a folio.
