The Layout Workspace is where the layout is created for the selected piece of content. The workspace consists of the workable space in the middle of the screen, tools on the left side, tool options on the right, and menus on top.
There are several tools available in the Layout Workspace to assist you in creating a layout. One of the most important tools is Select. No changes can be made until the phrase or a piece of the phrase has been selected. Check out the Selection Editor Tutorial for help with the Selection Editor.
When you have finished creating the layout, select OK located in the upper right corner. This will navigate you to the Animation Timeline.
