The GIFs show how simple it is to add shapes and gradients to a Story. It lies within your creativity how to integrate them best into your design. Find and adapt them to your own needs by changing different parameters like color, size, shape, shadows and more.

Add shapes/gradients by clicking on the shape icon at the toolbar on the left
Choose the type of shape you want to apply to your artboard
Move and resize the shape by dragging it
You can duplicate, delete and lock the shape with the action bar right above the object

More settings can be edited in the inspector sidebar on the right. You can change the colors, round edges, or add an animation.

💡Tip: Be fast and use shortcuts for basic layer actions with CTRT or CMD and duplicate +D, copy +C, paste +V, cut +X or delete (backspace)

Selecting multiple shapes at once is also possible. Let this GIF guide you through:
