How do I keep elements from moving?

Temporarily pause element movement

If you'd like to temporarily stop moving elements in your map, press the spacebar on your keyboard. Press spacebar again and they will go back to floating.

Permanently pin elements in place

If you'd like to permanently stop all elements from moving, you'll want to pin elements in place. Do this by pressing A on your keyboard to select all elements, then click the pin icon in the left side panel, or press P on your keyboard. This will pin all existing elements in place.
Please note that you can't pin elements in place if you're importing data from Google Sheets. In that case, you'd have to disconnect your Google Sheet and import your data with Excel
