Column Sizes & Adjustable Layouts

It would be nice if you could see the size of a column, a value in the sidebar column properties or maybe a pixel count displays as you drag the center divider?
Adjustable 'change layout' columns would also be usefull.

I'm going to stop saying column now, it's starting to lose sense,

Thanks for all you do.

Hi Lee

Your first suggestion would be useful. I will pass that on!

Did you know that the columns on the new layouts adjust to fit your content? So for example if you add an image to one of the columns that is larger than the default width, it will resize automatically and the other columns will be adjusted proportionately.

Just thought I would take the opportunity to tell people in case they hadn't noticed this!

Thats a good feature, i hope people read this and learn something, still, it would be easier, i think, if you could change it yourself. Maybe it works well for some people, im not saying its bad, it's good, but i personally would like the option of adjusting the widths.

Hi, maybe I can hook on to this question. When I use a two-column layout, typically, the columns automatically adjust to the fit the sizeof the content.
In a page I just created, though, this doesn't seem to work (I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what it is). Here is the link to the page where it doesn't work - you will see, that both columns have the same width:

And here is a link (same layout) where it works fine: the left column is smaller than the right one:

Thanks fo your help in advance.

Hello Tony,
Unless you put something into one of the sides that pushes the other one over, such as an image that is larger than the dimensions of the side, they will stay the same size. What you can do with that one is use the pixels under the Properties of the Text Widget, I will attach a screen shot of what this looks like and number that you can try in the left side box:



I hope this will help!
