Overflow.

Control what happens when elements like images, text or buttons overflow the borders of a parent container. Overflow control works for regular containers and sections as well as the items within Repeaters and Layouters. Select a section or container to control the overflow behaviour from the Inspector panel.

Showing overflow.

Sections and containers are set to Show by default, so when content flows outside, it’s still visible on the site.

The Inspector panel is open. Under overflow content, show is highlighted. This is the default setting.

Hiding overflow.

You can choose to Hide content if it flows outside the borders of its parent container, which means site visitors won’t see it.

The inspector panel is open. Under Overflow content, Hide is highlighted.

Showing overflow on scroll.

To enable content to scroll, add all the content to the section or container and set the overflow to Scroll. Next, choose the direction you want the content to flow in, either Vertical, Horizontal or Both. You can hide or show the scrollbar using the blue toggle.

The Inspector panel is open. Under Overflow content, scroll is highlighted and the drop down menu appears offering a choice of vertical, horizontal or both.
