Design & Layouting

Sizing.

You can set the sizing properties of each element to control how they respond to changes in the viewport width.

Sizing options.

Select an element on the canvas and open the Inspector panel to control how it resizes. Choose from Fixed, Fluid or Scale proportionally.

Fixed.

Use Fixed sizing to keep the width of the element the same across all viewport sizes. Fixed elements are generally measured in pixels (px).

Fluid.

Fluid sizing adjusts the width—and sometimes the height—of elements depending on the screen size. With fluid sizing, elements are measured in proportional units like percent (%), viewport height (vh) and viewport width (vw).

Scale proportionally.

When elements are scaled proportionally, their height and width maintain a balanced ratio when resized.


Note: Scale proportionally is only available for media and decorative elements.

One more thing.

You can set different sizing options for your elements at each breakpoint.
