Left panel - Elements tab

The Elements panel contains all the basic building blocks with which you can start building your user interfaces. Most of them correspond to native HTML elements.

You can drag and drop an element from this panel into the Canvas or use their keyboard shortcuts.​
Go to the Elements lesson to learn more.


Left panel - Layers and Files tab

In the Files panel you can see all the pages and components.

For each project you can create multiple pages, add links between them, and customize their URLs. We will cover Pages in an upcoming lesson.
Once you start building your user interface, you'll quickly detect some patterns that you will want to transform into Components.
A Component is a higher-level building block that you'll use later to speed up the composition of your layout. Components also accept properties that you can configure.
You can learn more about components in the Components lesson from the documentation.
