Layouts are at the heart of how Builder gives you more control over your site. The goal is to allow you to create a site structure that meets your needs rather than forcing you to structure your site to fit the mold of a specific theme.

Layouts are composed of the arrangement of page elements, or Modules. Each page on a Builder site can have its own unique Layout structure and arrangement of Modules.

The Layouts Tab

From the WordPress Dashboard, visit My Theme > Layouts and Views. This page gives a listing of available Layouts (either the pre-packaged Layouts included in a new Builder installation) or custom Layouts you have built.
