Adding New Objects

Adding a new object type is pretty simple in Element. Click the ADD '+' button on the Homepage. The add menu will open:

  • Recent – Displays recent objects you've created or opened.

  • Options – Displays all object features in Element

  • Search – Search for object types here.

Selecting the object brings up it's respective form (below):

Forms enable you to capture parameters for that object:

  1. Fields – This is where you enter details for your object.

  2. Cancel – Exits the form without saving any changes

  3. Save – Saves the form and opens the object Carousel

  4. Save (+) – Saves the form and opens another Add New form. That means you can keep adding new objects one after the other.
