Design & Layouting

Editing the grid.

The grid is versatile. It can be a simple layout of 2 cells, or a complex one with multiple rows and columns of different heights and widths.

On-canvas grid editing.

You can manually edit your grid directly from the canvas. Just grab any gridline and drag it to adjust.

Edit grid mode.

Click Adjust Grid, then Edit Grid to take granular control of your grid layout and dimensions. You can choose the units of measure and add or remove columns and rows. Control columns using the toolbar above the grid and rows using the toolbar on the left.

Columns & rows.

Add a column or row by clicking on the relevant toolbar and hovering until the + is shown. To remove, click on the column or row in the toolbar and choose Delete.

Adding gaps.

In Edit Grid mode, you can also adjust the gaps between columns and rows. These gaps are always in pixels (px), and are added between columns and rows.

Resizing columns & rows.

There are 3 ways to do this in Edit Grid mode:


1. Drag the gridlines of the columns or rows themselves

2. Click the CSS unit and type a new size for the column or row

3. Use the drag handles from the toolbars


Note: The last option affects the entire grid because all other columns or rows will adjust proportionally.

Measurements.

You can choose from a variety of units of measure to size your columns and rows.

Column measurements.

Fr stands for fraction and 1fr is 1 part of the available space. This measurement is the default for columns. For example, in a grid with 3 columns, you could have 1 column that's 50px wide and the other 2 columns are 1fr and 2fr. This means that in the space left, without the 50px, the column that’s 1fr gets ⅓ and the column that's 2fr gets ⅔ of the remaining space.

Row measurements.

Min/Max lets you set the minimum and maximum size for a column or row. This is the default measurement for rows. By default, Min is measured in px and Max is measured by Content. Since Min is a pixel value, there is a limit to how small the row can be, so it will never collapse. And since Max is sized according to content, the row will grow and shrink in response to the content inside.

New grid per breakpoint.

You can edit your grid at any breakpoint to suit your design. Add, remove and edit columns and rows, remove the grid completely or set a whole new grid.
