Sections are the most fundamental part of building inside the Design Editor. By default, sections are set to 100% width of the browser window and 900px height. While the width cannot be adjusted, the height is fully customizable.
Sections are great for dividing your content and organizing in the layer panel. Beyond that, sections make adapting your design to be responsive by breakpoint/device type a much more streamlined process.

From the top menu bar, click on the Section next to the add menu (

Styling a Section
Spacing top: Add padding to the top of the section in pixels or % to keep spacing between sections
Spacing bottom: Add padding to the bottom of the section in pixels or % to keep spacing between sections
Width: The width of a section can't be altered, it'll always be set to cover the 100%
Height: Set the height of the section in Pixels, % or set it to Auto so that it grows as you add content to it
Min H: Sets the minimum amount of height pixels a section can be. A red stippled horizontal line inside your section will reflect the minimum height
Clip content: Toggle to hide the content that goes beyond the section's edges
Resize to fill vertically: Click to set the section's height to 100%
Add fill: Add a color as the section's background
Add gradient: Combine colors to add a gradient as the section's background
Add background image: Upload an image or choose an image from one of our free stock images libraries and use it as the section's background
Border: Set a border color, opacity, and line weight for the container
Effects: Add different types of shadows or blur effects to both the container
Opacity: Adjust the transparency of the section
Specifying and locking the aspect ratio of a section will allow you to adjust and resize it but still maintain the overall relationship between height and width.
