Drag to resize and move elements


#1

When elements are in a div, section or other container AND the elements are using ‘absolute’ positioning, WebFlow should support dragging on the element itself to resize and a move such elements.


#2

The dragging part isn’t so easy to bring. Positioning an absolute element doesn’t only involve its position on your screen, but also an anchor (the reference point) and the unit (pt, px, %, vh, vw…)


#3

I would assume that the anchoring would not be an issue for elements with absolute positioning. One could just assume default (top,left) origin and support Drag move/resize (instead of numeric input fields)… this would make the WebFlow immensely more useful.


#4

To be fair Thomas did mention “absolute” in the first post…

I support this idea :slight_smile:
