Resizing & Moving Content

When a slide has multiple content panels you will have the option to Resize and/or Move them.

Resize

Resizing content on a slide is much the same as on the dashboard - dragging and dropping. You will notice that, while the Storyboard is in draft mode the left and bottom sides of an active content panel have tabs. Simply drag one of these tabs to adjust the size.

Note: When you resize a content panel, if there is a second panel on the slide it will be adjusted also. The two panels combined will always take up the same amount of space in total.

Moving

There are two layout options available on a slide when there are multiple content panels:

  1. Column
  2. Row
 Moving Content: (expand)

By default, Yellowfin uses the Row layout, meaning that the content panels sit side by side. To change this, while the Storyboard is in draft mode, hover over a content panel.

You will now see a Move icon in the top right corner, click and drag this to reposition. If you move the panel to reorder columns, it will look like this:

If you move the panel to create rows, it will look like this:

The row layout result:
