What is the Cornerstone/Content Builder Element

The Element is the building block of the Cornerstone/Content Builder. There are diverse elements available in the builders throughout X and Pro which gives you the ability to add content. Elements can have a general purpose such as the Text Element, or more specific such as the Map element. Ultimately it is the content builder decision to choose the best element and to know the details of the element to be able to achieve the best results.

How to Search for the Element

You can see the list of all elements available in the content builder by clicking the Elements tab at the top left-hand side of the builder screen.
