The YOOtheme Pro page builder comes with a collection of ready-to-use elements to build your content. You can save configured elements with their content and settings into the element library and reuse them later.
Open the YOOtheme Pro page builder and click the Plus icon to add an element to the layout. The element library will open in a modal.
The Elements tab shows all available elements. Click the element icon to load it into the layout. Elements are grouped into Basic, Multiple Items and System elements. Custom elements added by a child theme are grouped under Custom.
Basic elements are the default elements in YOOtheme Pro. They have their own content fields and settings. Learn more in the basic elements documentation.

The My Presets tab shows a list of your configured and saved elements with their content and settings. To load a preset element into your layout, simply click on it. Use the Edit and Delete icons which appear on hover to rename or delete the preset.
To save one of your elements including its content and settings as preset, hover it and click the Save in Library icon.
To keep your layout clearly arranged, it’s recommended to use as few elements as possible. For example, if you want to display a heading, an image and a text, use a Panel instead of three separate elements. If you have multiple panels side by side, use the Grid or Gallery elements which can display multiple items. If a specific combination of settings is needed, you may have to use the basic elements like Text and Image. Mind that this also means that you will have more settings to adjust if you want to change your layout later.
