Column Layout Problem

This is my day one experience of anytype!
I created a 3 column layout that I was happy with on my Mac.

. The sequence of cards did not match on my iPad so I moved them around but when I returned to the Mac version the top two rows of cards were out of sequence.
I have made dozens of attempts to move them back to where they should be without success.
What I am trying to achieve is a three column sequence with the Houses if the following order: Mercia, Wessex, Denmark, Normandy, Blois, Angevin, Plantagenet, Lancaster, York, Tudor, Stuart, Orange, Hanover, Sale-\Coburg, Windsor.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think what has happened here is that the 3 bottom rows are together. So, if you want to only have 3 columns, just move the 4th one from the top so that you are only left with 3. There’s an orange indication showing/helping you to land the block exactly below the other ones.

Also, the display layout is quite different on Mac (desktop) and mobile (iPad, iPhone, Android). So, at the moment you can’t expect them to look exactly the same.

Daniel, thanks for your helpful advice. It still took me ages with many many attempts to get things in the correct place. The orange bar was of very little use. Often the card to be moved just jumped back to its start point or landed in a position other than the orange bar.

you’re welcome :blush:


by any chance, weren’t you in the full screen version of the page/object? Because that has been a known issue of Anytype for quite some time. When you click on something and it opens in the hover/pop-up mode, moving blocks is buggy. Sometimes the cursor doesn’t register an orange indicator for you to land blocks but in my experience the same issues are not present while you press the fullscreen icon called “open as object”.

I’m sorry but I don’t understand what you mean by “full screen version of the page/object”
