Adding Content to Tabs 

The Tabs addon comes with a Text Block by default but that doesn’t mean that it is limited to just text. What makes this addon amazing is that you can actually nest any addon you want! You have all of the flexibility you get while designing a webpage with a Tab Item’s window. 

To nest other addons, open the Addons Panel and drag & drop the element you want into the Tab. You will notice grey lines appear on the Tab Item window when you hover with the new element which shows where it’ll be placed when dropped.

Once an addon’s been added, you can customize it to your preferences using its inline editor.
