  1. Right click to get popup menu
  2. Select Edit, and then New element
  3. Select an element tag name from the drop down list, or type a new one

  1. Type the "<" character, and then launch autocompletion by pressing Ctrl+SpaceBar.
  2. Select an element from the drop down list or type a new one.
