  • Z -index: Adjusting the Z-index can help you position items above or below other elements. A higher Z-index means that the image is higher up in the layer order.
    If you added an image but can’t see it in the preview, try adjusting the Z-index.
    Similarly, if you are combining the parallax item with widgets and texts, you may need to adjust the Z-index of that widget in case the image is covering other elements.
  • Mouse Track: Enable or disable mouse move interaction. Example: This means that if the user moves the mouse to the left, the image will move to the left, if the mouse moves upwards, the image will move upwards and so on.
    • Rate: Choose the movement rate for the layer background. The default is “-10”.
