“it might be nice to have the ability to set the width of any container but that width NOT be previewed within RW editing”
I’m not sure that’s something I can tackle. It seems like it would have to be very specifically tailored to each stack’s use-case.
I do encourage stack-developers to consider making Edit mode LESS WYSIWYG – that is to just let each stack behave like a default box and to NOT apply the stacks’s CSS and layout. It tends to make data entry a bit easier, even if it doesn’t look as pretty. It’s sort of a form follows function kind of a tradeoff.
I’m going to encourage this even more emphatically in the future and also see if there is anything I can do in the API and UX to help stack developer do that easier (easier for both devs AND the user).
And of course if you have suggestions, please shoot them my way. Sometimes even when I don’t implement exact suggestions - they give me the seed of an idea that grows into something great. So please keep them coming.
As far as edit the text in those narrow columns. Consider it a solved problem. The edit field will be a bit nicer in Stacks 4 – and will always provide a nice amount of space for editing. No more tiny editors. Yeah!
I just need to hurry up and finish Stacks 4. Hopefully not too much longer. I have a couple more big features to do – so hopefully sometime in 2018.
