The Automation Record section allows you to configure the automation designer.
When you drag elements from the right sidebar you are stuck in dropping them in the current view. This option will allow you to easily scroll up and down the page when you move the element towards the top or bottom of the page. By default this is ON.
Send Email – Show Designer Tab Icon (Opens Designer in a New Tab)
When this option is enabled it adds another icon in the Send Email element that allows you to open the Email Designer in a New Tab instead of opening it in the current page.
