How to do it

  1. We're going to build a simple page layout. Open the insert panel dropdown menu (1) and select Bootstrap Scaffolding (2).

  1. You can see the available actions under the Bootstrap Scaffolding menu. You can add, merge and delete cells, add containers and rows. Also you can make all grid cells in the same row equal in size, and select any cell and open the property inspector for it.

  1. First, we need to add a container. By default the container includes a row with a 12 columns wide cell.

  1. You can select the container label by clicking it (1) and change the type of the container in the Properties inspector (2). We will use the fixed container type for this tutorial.

Note: There are two types of containers:

- Fixed Container adapts to be 724px, 940px or 1170px wide depending on your viewport size.

- Fluid Container adapts to 100% of your viewport.  It has the same responsive capabilities the fixed grid system, ensuring proper proportions for key screen resolutions and devices.

  1. You can assign an ID (1) to the selected container if you need to and also add Extra CSS Classes to the selected container (2). We leave this field empty as we don't need any extra classes.

  1. Delete the default cell content and add a title for your project.

  1. Click the select cell button (1) in order to select the current cell, add a cell on the right (2) and delete the default cell content (3).

  1. Add some simple text links inside the cell (1). You can select the cell by clicking on its label (2) and the properties for the selected cell appear in the Properties Inspector. Here you can assign an ID (3) to the cell, add, Increase or decrease offset (4) of the selected cell, change the width of the cell (5), and also assign extra CSS Classes (6) to the selected cell.

  1. We align the cell content in the center (1). Now we are going to add another row below. Select add row below (2).

  1. We change the default content with our own. Click select cell (1) and center the content from the property inspector button (2).

  1. We add another row from the insert panel.

  1. Also we add a new cell to the right and style the cell content a little bit.

  1. Select the row label (1) and add another row below (2).

  1. We add two more cells in this row (1) and spread the cells (2) to become equal in size.

  1. Now our cells in this row are equal in size. In order to delete any of the cells, select the cell (1) and click the delete cell button (2).

  1. Now we want to merge the two cells that left in the row. Select the right cell (1) and select merge with left cell (2).

  1. The two cells content is now merged into one 12 columns wide cell.

  1. When you are done with the content you can check how your website looks on different screen sizes.
