The advantage of Divi Cloud is that we can store those building elements in the cloud to access from any Divi website at any time. This means you could have a large library to sort or search through to find the right layout. Fortunately, Divi Cloud makes it easy to preview your layouts before importing them, making your library easier to use. In this post, we’ll see how to preview a Divi Cloud item using three different methods to help you narrow down your options before importing your layouts.

Let’s get started!

Why Preview a Divi Cloud Item?

Previewing a Divi Cloud item before importing it is a great way to save time. One of the advantages of using Divi Cloud is the ability to create and save multiple variations of your layouts. As with any folder of useful website building tools, once you have several layouts, it can become difficult to know which layout is which.

The preview gives you a snapshot of the layout before importing it. This makes it much easier to import the correct layout every time. This is especially helpful if you have multiple layouts that look similar or have similar names.

Previewing makes browsing your library easier. You can search through and sort the layouts until something catches your eye, and then preview it to know if it will work for you. You’ll have an idea of what the layout looks like before importing it.
