Every webmaster creating a website in website builder WebWave CMS wants the project to look neat and tidy. Elements alignment is a crucial factor for reaching it. In this article you will learn how to align elements on the same level with accuracy up to 1px.
For your comfort WebWave created two ways to set elements on a website in equal rows exactly where you want it to be
A guide is a horizontal or vertical line that allows you to easily snap elements to it. Guides are visible in website builder on every subpage, so creating a similar page won't be a problem.
You can add as many guides as you need. They can be easily removed or hidden. You can also make elements not snap to guides.
The vertical or horizontal guide can be added in two different ways:
In order to change a guide location in website builder WebWave, you need to click on it and simply move it wherever you want. When you start doing it, you will see a number in pixels which represents a distance from the beginning of a website.
In order to remove a guide, click on it and drag it out of the working area.
Keep in mind that when you delete a guide, you delete it on every subpage in the builder.
If for some reason you want to hide all the guides in the builder, go to "Edit" and select "Hide guides".
When you add an element to your website and want to place it regardless of the guides, go to "Edit" and select "Don't snap to guides". Now elements won't automatically snap to the guides and you can place them wherever you want them to.
If you want elements to snap to guides again, go to this very place.
If you want to align only one element without snapping to guides, press Ctrl while moving element. It will make the element ignore guides.
If you want a couple of elements to be aligned on the same level, use elements relations.
To align a few elements, select them all. In the Settings Panel go to "Align multiple elements" and set:
This feature places elements vertically on the same distance from each other.
This feature places elements horizontally on the same distance from each other.
This feature aligns elements to the left edge of the most propounded element.
