A Container after being added to the Layout Sandbox
Containers are the base structural element for building a page layout. Normally, most other elements will need to go inside a container.
You may have more than one container in a page layout.
A Fluid Container after being added to the Layout Sandbox
Much like a normal Container, a Fluid Container is used to house other elements for your page layout.
The most important difference is that Fluid Containers are not limited by the sizing restrictions placed on regular Containers, namely the width restrictions.
A row after being added to the Layout Sandbox
Rows are another structural element, which must be placed inside a Container. The basic function of a Row is to be used to organize Column elements.
You may have more than one Row per Container.
A Column inside a Row after being added to the Layout Sandbox
Columns are structural elements which control the spacing and width of the elements inside them. They can be resized to shape the overall feel of the Row they are in. Clicking a Column in the Sandbox will give you the following options:
Show/Hide Column
This will set whether the Column and its' contents are visible to your visitors.
Delete
This will delete the Column and its' contents.
Move
This will move the Column within the Layout Sandbox when clicked and dragged.
Offset Left/Right
This will push the Column left or right within the row for spacing purposes.
Resize
This will change the width of the Column and its' contents, which will allow you to place multiple Columns on the same Row.
A Div/Section after being added to the Layout Sandbox
Div's perform the same functions as containers, however they are usually nested inside other elements with the express purpose of applying CSS styling classes.
The Clear Selections Button
This will deselect the currently selected element in the Sandbox which is useful for adding a new container-type elements that you don't want inside other containers.
Content Elements

Submenu
HTML Block
An Editable Region after being added to the Layout Sandbox
Editable Regions are the most used Content Element in most Layouts. These Regions can be used for anything from simple text to housing images/videos for your front end. Placing Editable Regions inside Columns allow them to be resized to fit multiple Regions next to each other on the same Row.
A Module Element after being added to the Layout Sandbox
Module Elements are used to house Site Administrator Module Elements such as Forms. Photo Galleries, FAQ's, etc. This Element can also be used to house Bootstrap Elements.
A Header Image Element after being added to the Layout Sandbox
This Element provides the location where the Header Image will be displayed on the page.
To be reviewed
An HTML Block Element after being added to the Layout Sandbox
HTML Blocks, as their name suggests, allow you to include HTML code in your page. Normally, this is better left to developers.
Example of a Normal Page Layout
Responsive Tabs
The Layout Sandbox allows you to design how your page will be visually represented on various sized devices. By clicking the tabs, you can manipulate how the sizing of the Elements will appear on the given device.
Something to note, due to Standard Best Practices, new elements can only be added in the Extra Small Screen tab. This gives you a mobile-ready design. Best practice is to finalize from the smallest screen to the largest screen.
Remember: Layout changes will carry forward to larger sizes, but not downward to smaller sizes.
