Setting widths and heights

GroovePages offers several options to configure both the width and height of elements on the canvas.

Width

The Width dropdown offers several options to choose from:

  • auto
    This makes it expand to occupy all available horizontal space within its containing block. If it has any horizontal padding or border, the widths of those do not add to the total width of the element.
  • px
    When choosing this option, you'll be able to use the slider to set a width of a fixed number of pixels for the selected element.
  • Relative to page
    Choosing this option will activate a slider with options using the rem unit, resulting in the element's width being set relative to the width of the page.
  • Relative to parent
    Choosing this option will activate a slider with options setting the element's width as a percentage of the elements parent. For example, setting a value of  "1/2" would make the element's width 50% of its parent. 
  • full
    the element’s total width will be 100% of its containing block plus any horizontal margin, padding and border.
  • screen
    This option will set the element's width to 100% of the available viewport (ie the browser window)

Minimum width

The "Minimum width" dropdown let's you choose a minimum width for the selected element. We currently offer two options:
