How to find lost page elements

Sometimes you can lose an element on your landing page as you work in the editor. Often it’s become too small to find or grab (for moving around) – or maybe it’s moved behind another object.

The simplest way to deal with this is to open the “Page Contents” panel on the left side of the editor.

It’s a little bit hidden away, but if you look to the left when you are editing a page you’ll see a black line with an arrow – click this to expand the left panel.

Now you will see a tree structure which shows the hierarchical layout of your landing page in terms of the elements on the page.

You can double-click on them to edit the name (for organization) – or you can click them once to make them selected. Now if you mouse back over the central editing area, you’ll see your page element highlighted with the familiar dashed line – enabling you to move it around (drag or nudge with the arrow keys – use Shift + arrow keys to nudge by 10px at a time). And you can now also delete the element if you want to get rid of it.
