- Before Icon, After Icon. You can place icons before and after the text or image on the button. Here you can choose to upload them as an SVG file or pick it from the Icon Library;
- Alignment. Here you can choose the position of the button within the section;
- Content Type. There are two types of dropbar – a simple text notification and a more complex form. If you want just a notification, you can choose the “Simple Text” option and write it down in the Simple Text text area. Otherwise, you should choose the “Template” option. In that case, you will be able to select a pre-made template. The templates are created in the Template > Add New dashboard tab. For example, you can add a contact form to the dropbar.
