In the Layout and Message builder tool, Elements refers to the different items you can add to a canvas to compose your final visual design.
To add an element to a canvas you click and drag if from the Add Elements section of the Control Panel to the approximate area you want it on the canvas
When you Drag and Drop an Element to the canvas it will create a contained space for the element. While interacting with an element, like when first added, a red outline is visible indicating that you have the element selected. Depending on the type of element some things may happen automatically, like a text element opening it’s edit mode so you can begin typing. Some elements take no action on their own and require the user to hover their mouse over the upper right corner of the element and click on the gear icon to open the edit options. Each different element will have different edit options based on the needs and abilities of that specific element.
