Go to the Elements tab, scroll down to the Interactive section and drag & drop the Navbar element to the top of your project.

This will add a premade navbar that you can easily style and customize for both Desktop and Mobile versions.

Adding new elements

To add a new element to your navbar, from the Navbar Settings section click on the Add menu item button. This will add a new simple menu item to both the desktop and mobile version.

Additionally, from the Elements tab you can drag and drop a normal Text element or a Dropdown element to the navbar if you want to create a more interactive navbar.

Adding elements with drag and drop will not add the element to both mobile and desktop versions. Additionally, deleting elements from one version will not delete them from the other.
