By clicking the Action Menu icon, you will see all the advanced options for the selected element. Click an option from this menu will open the Design Panel.
Resizing in Cubender When an element is selected, you will notice little circles on all sides and corners of the element. These are resize handles. To resize an element, simply drag a resize handle. TIP: To maintain the same aspect ratio, hold "SHIFT" while dragging a handle.
