How are my Layers Sorted?

Each Element that you add to your Canvas gets added as a Layer within your Layers Panel.
Elements are sorted into 3 main folders:

Top Level, Content, and Footer.

 

Elements are automatically sorted into these main folders based on their attributes and placement on the page. 

The Content and Footer Folders contain elements located in their respective sections of the page. Content Elements located in the Content folder, and Footer Elements located in the Footer folder. 

The Top Level Folder on the other hand, contains all elements that are Pinned or have Parallax Animation. Pinned and Parallax elements get placed on their own layer above both Content and Footer, that is why they require their own folder.
