Adding Things to the canvas.

Things are added to the canvas (the area where you create and edit flows), from your library.

Your library is simply a collection of your things. It may contain things that have been pre-populated for you, or that you have added from the Stringify marketplace.

To add one or more things to the canvas, tap on the + button at the bottom of the canvas.

This will bring you your library. Tap on one or more things (a green checkbox will appear on top of each selected thing), and when finished, tap on the Add button.

The things you just selected will be shown in the staging area of the canvas. The staging area is simply a temporary holding area for your things as they wait to be dragged onto the canvas.

Drag and drop the things from the staging area to an open spot on the canvas. If needed, the thing will "snap" into the closest open spot.

Repeat as needed to add things to the canvas.


 Tip: Missing something from your library? From the Dashboard, tap on Discover, to go to the Stringify marketplace. From there you can find and add numerous additional things to make even more incredible flows.

    Should also include the other technique - where you do a drag in the canvas and it leads you to the thing list. Confused the heck out of me when I was just trying to move something.
    Should also show how to delete things - slight drag until the trash can appears below. That was really difficult to find.
