Pasting elements INTO a layout grid

Post by heynen » Fri Jan 19, 2018 9:50 pm

Dear all,

one very general question - I could not find the answer elsewhere: How can I insert objects directly into a layout grid? I have two cases:

Very often, I need to duplicate an element on my page, and put the duplicate to another place (the other place is most often a spot inside a layout grid).

So far, I have never been able to copy an element directly into the layout grid. So what I do is: a) copy the element to the bottom of the page. b) move the element into the layout grid.Is there any way of telling WWB "I want to copy this element exactly into this layout grid"?

P.S.: The "paste in place" command works sometimes for this, but not always. It does not seem to work when I want to duplicate a layout grid or when I want to duplicate several objects at once.

You cannot directly copy/past object inside a layout grid, you will need to 'drag' the object into the layout.

thank you.

At the moment, I copy the elements to the bottom of the page and then I drag them into the layout grid.

a) Is that the correct way?
b) Could you make it possible in one of the next releases to directly copy elements into the layout grid? I think that would make things easier.

PS.: Thank you for the program. I have almost finished my page, and for me WWB is a great tool. I would not have been able to do the page with HTML programming, and I would not have been able to get the design that I wanted with Wordpress, Webflow etc (those are really too restricted).

Hi. Sometimes when having long vertical pages and very little empty space at the right of the page, I just resize the page ex 75% so I get more space to the right where I can paste the copy and drag into layout grid.

This functionality is planned for the next version. However this will be a major modification in the core of the workplace so this will take some time before it is ready.

I have some common things like this I do and to get around it I place the layout grid then added my elements on it and saved it as a block. So all I do now is drag my block on the page and presto there it all is, then I make any changes I need.

One of my blocks is a complete ecommerce block containing my Mals Ecommerce extensions and its quick and easy just to drag it onto the page make a change and delete any objects I don't require for that site.

Hope this helps in some way

Graham

Thank you Pablo for considering this in the next release!

Thanks to everyone for the helpful hints. I will try to use these as well.
