1. Using 'Readz Blocks'

Blocks are at the heart of Readz. They allow you to quickly create layouts, mixing up covers, headers, text, images and so on.

These blocks are saved and available account-wide, so all your URLs on Readz can utilize your saved blocks.
1. To open the Blocks panel, locate the toolbar on the left side of the screen.
2. Click the plus Blocks sign. The Blocks panel displays.
Creating your own blocks is an add-on to the regular Readz subscription. To enable this feature, you need the 'Design Pro' add-on.

2. Creating and adding your own Blocks

Blocks that you added will be accessible under the 'My Blocks' tab.

Adding Blocks

Select the element or group of elements you want to convert into a re-usable block.

After clicking the 'Add Blocks' button, a panel will appear to add more information on the block you want to add. Note that you cannot edit the categories, these are fixed.

Add the name and select in which category you want to place your block.
Click 'Done'.
If you did not select anything when you clicked the 'Add Block' button, you will be prompted to select the future block in the canvas.

The highlighted area shows the element or group of elements which will be added as a Block.

Click on the highlighted area to add as a Block, or alternatively, click the Cancel button on the top left of the canvas to stop the process.

Deleting Blocks

To delete a block:
- hover over the block you want to delete
- a 'Trash' icon will appear, click it
- when asked to confirm, select Yes or Cancel to stop the process
To add a block, simply drag and drop it onto the canvas to its desired position. Once a block has been added, you can change everything about it. You can change the style, add more elements to it, or delete some of the elements in it. There really are no rules here.

Important note:
All the Readz Blocks are 'sections' and defined as 'groups'.

Section: this means that any Readz Block will span the full width of your canvas by default. You can change this property:
- select the block
- right-click
- select 'Convert to Box'

Group: this makes the Block behave as if it were a single element when you move it around. To edit and change elements within the Block, simply 'click-through' on the element, and you will be able to change the styling, edit the content and even delete it. Check this article on 'Grouping Elements' for more information. Click every section to open it up and view all the available options.

The blocks are grouped into 6 categories.Nothing stops you from using these blocks for any other purpose of course.

- Headers. In this category you will find a selection of covers for your publications and headers for articles.
- Structure. Here you will find some table-of-content layouts, as well as text-with-image blocks.
- Titles & Text. A collection of various text layouts.
- Image & Video.
- Forms. Several pre-made form layouts
- Footers.
The Blocks panel contains several main sections with over a hundred layout components/blocks that you can use to add content, create structure, and engage your audience. 
You can create your own Blocks and add these to the library. This allows you to re-use some recurring layouts that have the exact same content, like forms, footers, sign-up CTAs or any layout block really.

Any element, group, section or collection of elements can be added to your library of re-usable blocks.
You will find the 'Create New Blocks' button on the top of the Blocks panel. Click it to start adding your own blocks.
Your block will be added to the 'My Blocks' library and is now ready for use.

Editing Blocks

If you want to upload a changed or more recent version of your block, delete the current one and upload the newest version.
If you want to change the name or category of the block:
- hover over the block
- an 'edit' pencil will appear. Select it to edit the name and/or category.
