Re: creating a basic column layout

Hi Heather,

Good to hear from you again!

1. Xway doesn't currently have built-in support for floated items, although it's possible to use extended properties: 1. Select the item you want to float, 2. Add an extended property in the Extended Properties section of the Box Inspector: name="float" and value="left" or "right" (without quotes).

2. A much better way of creating a column layout is to use CSS flexbox. We plan to support this directly in future, but it's possible to use extended properties once again. We used flexbox on our Xway page. See this thread for more details: https://softpress.groups.io/g/xway-talk/topic/75298839

3. Consider whether you really want to have a multi-column layout. This works well on desktop browsers, but it doesn't work so well with mobile browsers where there's limited horizontal space.
