NEED SHAPE TO EXTEND FULLY ACROSS PAGE.

Post by justin b » Tue Sep 08, 2020 11:41 am

Hi Pablo
Can you let me know how i might be able to get a simple shape to extend across a page fully without it being restricted to the center middle? I have tried doing all sort of things to get it to appear as it is in design mode. Thankyou

Place the shape inside a layout grid.
set the output to SVG and 'full width' to true

Sorry to be using up a lot of your time. I have a question. How will it be possible to overlap shapes and still keep position integrity? My last question was based on the idea of having a larger shape spanning across the page in the back ground with other shapes above it. Hope you can help.

Overlapping objects is only possible in fixed/absolute layout

So this will take from the responsiveness of the site? What i will do is make a background of the angled shapes i need with an external program then use it as the page background in WWB revealing the sloping lines which would have been the intended shapes I needed =, Thanks again

Did you consider using shape dividers?

Or else just use a background image?

Shape divider ah! lets have a look .....sounds interesting! The problem with WWB is that its too rich with goodies. Please do a project manual of some kind cause the depth of this software is immense. \

While I am here do you know if there is a way to have an animating line under some text so that on page reveal it fades in from one end to the other kind of like a musical led meter would do in response to sound ?

Maybe you can use a separate line object below the text and animation this line?

In the end i just got a blue line then used a another one to mask that over , change the mask color to match the background then introduce a slide transition to reveal the blue line underneath it . A bit tedious but it did the job well enough.

Also, and while i am here, i want to be able restrict the scroll bar to the beginning and end of each page section so the user sees only each part of the page at the specific points. This will be the same with the mouse wheel roll. Each part turn moves the user to the next page. How will i go about this?

Cheers again Pablo

Yes kind of..... The only difference is that i would have liked the very same idea but with the freedom to use another menu style to suit the overall design.

In that case, you will need to use a custom script.
For example: https://projects.lukehaas.me/scrollify/

Thanks again!
Just used the transform text then set it at an angle. Preview will not show it with the angle only as an horizontal object.

Also is there a full and unabridged list of all the shortcuts available and how might i go about making custom shortcuts for each action?

All the best....again
