When creating a new section, you have two choices: Page Flow or Static. This is a crucial decision. Once you make a section page flow or static, there’s no changing it.

What’s the difference? Let’s take a look.

Page Flow:

Page flow sections are similar to standard word processor pages. Whenever your text or inline content runs over the borders of that text box, a new page is created so you can keep writing.


Static sections are a blank canvas. You add the textboxes, elements, and manually add pages from the Section Pane.

Which one’s for me?

Choosing a section depends on what you’re going to include inside it.

Copy-heavy sections, like contracts, terms of service, or appendixes are best made with page flow. You’re going to be doing a lot of typing and having the same, consistent text box will help you get it done faster.

Design-heavy sections, like testimonial pages, product showcases, or About Us sections are great for static sections.
