Layout refers to the way various elements like images, titles, videos, and presenters are arranged in a scene.
This article will explain:
What is the Difference between a Layout and a Template?
A layout refers to the way various elements in the scene are arranged. Whereas a template is a collection of different layouts. Templates contain a bank of similar or very different layout options which make each template unique.
The elements within a layout include images, video, color backgrounds, titles, text boxes, and the presenter.
For example, there are two layouts below taken from the same template. The first layout (image on left) includes only the presenter and color background elements — without any media, title, or paragraph elements. Whereas the second layout (image on right) includes a small presenter, image background, and a title box.
How to Choose a Layout
Every scene includes the ability to edit its layout. To change the layout of any scene:
- Select the scene you wish to change the layout on. Once selected, you will see a thin blue line around the border of the scene. This will also automatically bring you to the Scene tab located in the toolbar on the right-hand side.
- Click on the drop-down arrow next to the current layout, and the bank of layout options will appear below.
- Scroll until you find your desired layout for your scene.
How to Add a Title and Media to the Layout
Some layouts have a dedicated space for media and titles. To demonstrate how to edit those, let’s select the following layout for our scene:
As you can see, there is a number of different elements within this layout. There is a presenter bubble, title, text box, and media.
Let’s start with editing the title and text box. To edit the title and text box for your desired scene, click on the scene as we did earlier, to highlight it in a thin blue line. This will automatically bring you to the Scene tab, where you will be able to enter your desired title and text:
To edit the media (image or video) for this scene, select the media box.
From here, you can choose to upload your own saved media or use our stock images and videos. Once uploaded and/or chosen, simply click Select to apply the media within the scene:
Within the media library, you also have quick actions for any uploaded media like renaming or downloading. Just hover over the desired media, then select the three ellipses in the top right-hand corner.
