Layout mode (simple vs responsive grid) on Container Component doesn't do anything?


Level 2

I have a requirement to create a container that uses Flex to float and align items.


When I put down a container and toggle it to "Simple" mode, there doesn't seem to be any difference from the "(Default)" and "Responsive Grid" modes.  How can I turn off the layout toggle capabilities on nested components inside of a container that is marked as "Simple"?  What does "Simple" even do?  Can I just add a new option for "Flex" and disable layout mode somehow for that?

Hi @jdylanmc 

Requirement is not clear. Can you please add details with required screenshots.

I think it is this bug: [Container] Container in simple mode is treated as a grid by editor interface · Issue #1395 · adobe/...


Basically: containers have the ability to switch between "Responsive Grid" and "Simple"- but this doesn't do anything logically from what I can tell other than render a different html template.  I am trying to disable the ability to size items within certain containers.
