1. Welcome to the canvas

1. Navigation 🧭

If you're used to working in tabs and not canvases, then it's worth getting oriented with navigating the canvas.

💡 See the full list of keyboard shortcuts here.

2. The Canvas UI

Toolbar: Located at the bottom of the screen, the toolbar contains all the options for inserting content into the canvas.

Data sidebar: On the left-hand side of the screen, the data sidebar shows all of the schemas and tables in your databases and the cells in your canvas. Anything in the data bar is a valid query target.

Design bar: Located on the right-hand side of the screen, the design bar lets you customize basically everything on your canvas. This is where you can change colors of an object, update the title of a cell, and where all of your visualization building will take place.

Canvas controls: In the upper right, canvas controls contain items like reporting options, query caching and sharing.

Help menu: The help menu located in the lower right contains links to documentation, release notes and our in-app chat support.

3. Give your canvas a title

It's best practice to give your canvas a title when you start. Take it from us, trying to find which version of 'Untitled' you need is never fun...

For our Spotify example, let's name our canvas 'Spotify Artist Exploration'
