And how do I get the widths to show up? I did it once (blue vertical bars), but I'll be d#%ned if I can do it again.
I'm sorry if this has already been answered - how do I change the default paragraph width?
Select a paragraph and on the Design pane set the width as a percentage of the parent container (that parent can be a column, see below) or set a maximum width. If you use the Type selector (Apply to Type) it applies to all paragraphs. If you Apply to class, it applies to all paragraphs that are using that class.
It's currently 8 and the column is 12, but I'd like to make the paragraph 10 or even 12.
The columns width can be managed on the Layout pane . If the paragraph is placed directed into a column its width is relative (100% or less) to that (parent) column. If the column span (width) increases, so will the paragraph. Experiment with it for a few minutes and all will become clear I am sure
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your help. But I must still be missing something. My column width is 12, my paragraph is set to 100% width, but the paragraph is only 8 wide and I can only make it narrower, not wider.
Can you share your project file, so we can see what may be causing this?
To get a paragraph to span the whole width, I clicked on 'add row' then drug a paragraph into it. I didn't set any right/left padding or margins, so it takes up the full row width (12 col.). Under Layout > Column, I can change it to 10 or 11 columns with one click.
Check all your settings (rows, columns, paragraphs) to see if you've added any margins, padding, or even classes that would affect the width.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
