Tips & Tricks: Working with Sections

Everything you need to know about sections.

Think of sections as one horizontal slice of your folio. You can rearrange these slices however you want and decide what modules go in them. A section can be as large or as small as you want depending on the height of your content. But remember, each section equals one full screen slide if you present or one full page if you export your folio.

We recommend that users take advantage of separate sections when building folios. Separate sections make it easier to move pieces of a folio around. Additionally, it’s good to have your folio divided into sections, it is easier to page break by sections when exporting. 

Each tip will have easy-to-follow instructions along with a short GIF to walk you through it. This guide will be updated periodically so feel free to check in occasionally for more tips!

  • To duplicate a section, go to the dropdown menu and select “Duplicate.” A duplicate will appear just below the same section. This will save you a lot of time if you want to copy several modules at the same time.
