Elements can be created by right-clicking the element below which you want to attach the new element and selecting Create New... > Element > [Element type] from the pop-up menu or dragging the desired kind of element from the Elements section in the Tool Palette. However, as we use the QPR Instant Score Template in this exercise, we can take advantage of its predefined array of elements, which allows rapid scorecard construction. So we will construct the basic structure of the model by copying and pasting the ready-made model elements.
