Layouter is non-intuitive

The layouter is showing bizarre behavior. I managed to get one layouter (mosaic) to work and it does what it is supposed to do. Though I have trouble inserting a new item between 2 items where I want it. I ended up putting the new item finally at the end of the deck.

Then I decided to put a second layouter (mosaic) in another section below a video. It is just bizarre how it rearranges. There are only 2 items in that layouter. I tried adjusting margins, docking, alignments, putting the layouter in a new container etc hoping I will get it to do the right thing upon resizing the window. But it seems to have a mind of its own. There are too many parameters given for customization in the properties panel and figuring out how it is going to behave when you change width, height, docking etc is mind boggling. All I care about in a layouter is the spacing between items (horizontally & vertically) and the margin around the whole layouter. Everything else is an overkill.

Thank you for your meaningful feedback. The Layouter is a powerful component, offering a lot of customization. That customziation allows to create a large variety of layouts and designs with it. However, understanding its basic behavior can help you work with it without much hassle. If you wish to share your site and a bit more details about what you were trying to achieve, we'll be more than happy to look into it and advise.

Looking forward to hear back from you,
