About Canvas

It is the container that holds all the elements of your page. After you publish a page, everything you drag into Canvas will show up on the live view.

Blank canvas

When you create a new page and don’t choose any pre-made template, the canvas appears as blank and tells you to drag & drop elements from the panel.

Turn on Theme Styling

When Theme Styling is on, you will see the real header/footer of your Shopify theme as well as other theme’s styling.

In some cases, there might be a conflict with the theme based on some other element that you’ve installed on your page. If you see a blank screen after turning this feature on, please turn it off.

When Theme Styling is off, you can’t really see the Header and Footer of your theme but they are displayed on PageFly editor as Header and Footer placeholders.

If you want to show or hide the header and footer, just select the placeholders, you can easily access the Page Settings to configure this.

You can watch this video about how to avoid theme-conflict
