The ease of building a page using page builder is highly reliant on how easily a user can navigate from one module to another. There are 4 major components that can be used to navigate between modules within Tatsu. You will always have more than one ways to cruise across the modules while you are editing the pages. 

Tree View

Tree view is the foremost tab on the Left Panel of TATSU. This precisely has the entire contents of your page displyed in a tree structure. The Tree View has a preview text of all your modules and has an indicator if the module is “hidden” in any specific view port.
