Container Element

A Container Element holds other Elements, so it provides opportunities for controlling your layout. The Container Element is similar to a <div> tag because it provides extremely flexible positioning. Because of its flexible positioning, PaperThin recommends using the Container Element rather than the Tabular Element for arranging page Elements. PaperThin also recommends using the Container Element instead of the Scheduled Element, because it provides all the functionality of the Scheduled Element, but adds the advantages of flexible positioning.

A Container Element can hold one or more other Elements, positioned vertically one below the other.

Insert the Container Element from the Element Gallery Layout Elements section.
