Creating a Custom Segment

A custom segment is a reusable component just like a snippet. But it is slightly different from it.

Once you create a snippet and add it to a page, you cannot edit its content within the page itself. But with custom segment, you can easily do that. Therefore, custom segment is more convenient and user-friendly.

Creating a Custom Segment

#1. Go to Snippets panel

To create a snippet, go to the Snippets panel in the Right Toolbar and click on the Add Snippet button once. A dialogue box, "Create New Snippet" will open in your canvas.
