Dialog Steps are non-contextual bubbles that will appear at the center of the view, they don't need to have any Site element attached to them, and they have a limited set of transitions ("Next" button and Timer).
Creating a dialog
You can create a modal in two ways (the same ways you can create steps):
Click on the plus button in the sidebar to insert a dialog at the end of the Journey
- Hover over the Play button of an existing step/dialog, then click on the appearing plus button, to place a new dialog after the selected one
Editing a dialog
Now that you have created a dialog, you can start editing it by directly clicking on the bubble (inline editing) or opening the step editor.
