This scrollable panel is located in the top-left corner of your workspace. By default, it displays all elements, including image assets, in the current scene in the order they were added. 

Important: The order of the layers matters, especially inside container elements, as elements at the top of the list will appear on top of the layers below them during playthrough. For details, see Elements and Layers.

To see the properties of an individual layer, click the layer, and the Properties panel updates accordingly. Also, the type of the selected element will be highlighted in the Elements panel.

 

Tip: To re-order the layers, click and drag the layers in the list as needed.

Reuse

Selecting this icon will make the element visible in every scene across your project. Enabling Global Layers will create a Global Layers subsection within the layers panel, so you can easily identify which layers are being reused across the project. If you wish to hide an element from specific scenes, navigate to the desired scenes and click the show/hide icon to hide the element.

Show/Hide

Click to hide an element from the current scene or to make a hidden element or an element defined for another scene appear in the currently selected scene, for example, to make a call-to-action button appear in all scenes throughout the demo.

Duplicate

Right click and select Duplicate to make a copy of the element and all of its properties or nested elements in case of containers.

By default, the duplicated layer has the same name as the original with a copy number in parentheses. Use the Properties panel to rename it.

Tip: You can also use keyboard shortcuts to copy (Command+C) or cut (Command+X) selected single or multiple (Shift+click) layers on the canvas and paste (Command+V) them to the same location with the same properties in another scene.

Delete

Right click and select Delete to remove the corresponding layer.

To delete multiple layers, use Shift+click to select them and press Delete. 

Container Arrow

Expands and collapses the Container element menu allowing you to add, view, and delete the nested elements inside it. For details, see Containers and  Add Buttons and URLs.

Important: The elements in the menu are shown in reverse order on the screen, that is, the element at the bottom of the menu will be the top, frontmost layer on the screen. For details, see Elements and Layers.
