In this article, you will learn and understand the DesignFiles’ Design Editor. The Design Editor allows you to create visually stunning 2D & 3D concept boards under 20 minutes. It consists of 6 main parts with various useful features. We marked each part and described its functions so you will know where to find your desired option.
Access the Design Editor within the DESIGN BOARDS’ tab. You can either use the Add Design or Edit Design buttons to open the Design Editor.
