Hello.

 

I'm working on a form in AEM Forms. I have AEM 6.5.5.0 with the appropriate Forms module for OSX listed here: https://helpx.adobe.com/pl/aem-forms/kb/aem-forms-releases.html.

 

Everything is working correctly. I'm struggling with one thing: I'm trying to set a multi-column layout in my form similar to the one recorded here: https://youtu.be/VY70RfaS0nM?t=576. The video shows how to set three columns in the root panel in AEM 6.4.

 

In 6.5 I don't see the "Number of columns" dropdown in the Root panel properties. Is there a way to change the number of columns in AEM 6.5? How can I achieve that?

 

Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi @Peter127 ,

Hope you are doing well.

Looks like "Number of Columns" option is removed from AEM Forms 6.5.

We need to use Layout Mode for the same.

You can refer to the following article for Layout mode:

@Peter127 

The colspan feature has been removed from version 6.5. Now, you may use layout mode to size the fields in a panel.

 

A workaround: This change is due to the fact that panel started using gridFluidLayout2 instead of gridFluidLayout with 6.5. You may login to crx/de and manually edit the Form Fragment nodes and change the references from gridFluidLayout2 to gridFluidLayout.

The "Number of Columns" field will come back up however, as a side effect the "Panel Layout" field for the guideRootPanel will start displaying a deprecated message "Responsive (Deprecated) - everything on one page without navigation"
