Group Overlapping

When I make a previous group that I am working on invisible, and the other visible, group 1 overlaps and dosen’t let me work on group 2 without sending items to group 1 or manually requiring me to go to element tree and click on the item I want to work on in group 2.

Hey :wave: @marc.vykhopen

Welcome to the Bubble Community :tada: :confetti_ball:

In the properties inspector if you check the box the ‘collapse when hidden’ does that help?

Making a screen recording in this case might allow us to assist you best.

Hope we can figure this out for you. :blush:

Hey. Thanks for replying, the option to “Collapse when hidden” is not showing up.

I see. Yeah. When you have the Container Layout to ‘Fixed’ it’s really hard to work with. I normally use ‘Column’ and sometimes a ‘Row’ if I need something like your Login with Google button. I recommend creating a save point first since changing that could mess up a lot of things on your page potentially. It’s worth it to make a responsive layout instead of just a fixed one though. Does that make sense? :blush: Then it can look good on any size screen.

Thanks so much. 2 things: 1. How do I make a save point, can I copy and paste my work onto another page to start again? - Also how should I distinguish between using columns and rows? Thanks again

Also, when I’m trying to move a piece of text that is a column, it dosen’t like me like a fixed container.



Create a save point :point_up:

You can clone your page before you make any changes. :blush:

Yes, but when I am trying to freely move a image or piece of text, if it’s not fixed it won’t let me and when I set the parent to fixed, it messes everything up. How can i freely move rows and columns. So sorry for all the questions. Thanks again

Here is an example of what it would look like Column vs Rows

When you want to move things around, you can do it a few different ways, try using the element tree or use these buttons:

Does that help? :blush:

Sorry, but I have been trying for about 30 minutes to align the columns to where I want them and nothing is working. Any way around this that dosen’t involve making the parent a fixed container because that messes up everything.

You can try just clicking the element in the element tree to see if you can access it. I recommend going through these tutorials to try to understand it better. Or schedule a coaching session to get help with your specific app.
