Blocks and note structure

The editor has a block structure, therefore comprising blocks. The role of such a block can be played by text, a picture, a table, etc. Each block can be moved up and down, left and right. Each block has its own special menu (pin). In this menu you can delete a block, duplicate it, or change its background.



How to move a block?

To move a block, you need to click on the pin of the block and without releasing the mouse move it to the right place. If you move left-right, columns are created. The distance between the columns can be adjusted. To do that, click on the separator and move it to the left or right.
