Adding a Shape element

In the field of design, even simple tools can add a unique style and expression to your website. One of such tools is the Shape element, which you can add to your website as part of the Flex block.

Outline: You can choose the color, thickness, and style of the outline:

Shadow: Here you can specify the position of the shadow in the X and Y axes, the blurring of the shadow, and its size:
