There are several ways to interact with, add, edit, and move Blast Elements - Below are some of the methods to engage with, and to utilize, general actions that are available for all Elements.

Please Note: For the below options to be available, please keep or discard any edits you're currently making to an existing element so that the right panel lists all available elements.

You will not be able to perform any of these actions if you are editing an Element.

Add an Element

To add an Element to your Blast, you can do either of the following:

Click the Element

Click the Element on the right side of your screen that you want to add to your Blast. This will place the Element at the bottom of your Blast.

Drag & Drop the Element

Drag the Element from the right side of your screen that you want to add to your Blast, and drop it into the Blast Editor where you want it placed.

While dragging the Element, you will see grey borders appear around any existing Elements - make sure you only drop the Element where you see a blue line appear along the edges of those Elements. If you do not see the blue line appear before dropping the Element, it will not be added to your Blast.

Edit an Existing Element

To edit an existing Element inside your Blast, all you need to do is click on the Element that you want to edit in the left editor panel. After you click on the Element, you can make your edits on the right side of your screen.

When you are finished editing an element and want to keep your changes, click Keep. Remember to also Save as Draft to save the changes before exiting the Blast editor.

Existing Element Actions

1. Move an Element

  1. Hover your cursor over the Element you want to move.

  2. Click and hold the first icon.

  3. Drag and drop the Element where you want it placed in your Blast.

Please Note: You can only place an Element where you see a blue line appear. When you see the blue line, you can drop the Element, and it will move to that place in your Blast.

Move a Row of Elements

When you have multiple Rows of Elements and want to adjust the location of the elements in specific row, you can move rows Up or Down. This will move the entire row, so when you have multiple elements along the same row, they will all move together.

2. Duplicate an Element

  1. Hover your mouse over the Element you want to copy.

  2. Click the second icon.

  3. Once clicked, the duplicated Element will appear in your Blast, and the Blast Editor will open. You can then edit this Element to your liking and move it to the desired position in your Blast.

3. Delete an Element

  1. Hover your mouse over the Element you want to delete.

  2. Click the third icon.

  3. Once you click this icon, a confirmation modal will appear where you can click Yes to delete the Element from your Blast.

Adjust Element Width

Blast Elements can have different widths when multiple Elements are on the same row. The available width options are: 50%, 33%, and 25%. You can have up to 4 Columns on each row.

To change the width of an existing Element inside your Blast, hover your cursor over the line between Side-by-Side Elements. A dark-blue line with three dots will appear.

Click and drag the three dots right/left to alter the width of your Element. You may need to drag it a bit further than expected if the resizing isn't snapping when expected.
