The horizontal scroll section is a useful feature to add to your project. It allows you to display content in a side-scrolling manner, which can be especially useful for displaying images or large blocks of text. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps of using the horizontal scroll section.

Adding a Horizontal Scroll section

  • From the top menu bar, click on the Add Menu (Shortcut: M)

  • Search for and select Horizontal Scroll

  • Select it

  • Hover over the canvas and click where it says Add section here; two horizontal scroll sections will automatically be added (Horizontal scroll has to have at least two sections to work)

Note: To scroll horizontally, you'll need to add more than one horizontal scroll section.

Styling a Horizontal Scroll section

  • Spacing top: Add padding to the top of the Horizontal Scroll section in pixels or % to keep spacing between sections

  • Spacing bottom: Add padding to the bottom of the Horizontal Scroll section in pixels or % to keep spacing between sections

  • Width: The width of a Horizontal Scroll section can't be altered, it'll always be set to cover the 100%

  • Height: Set the height of the section in Pixels, % or set it to Auto so that it grows as you add content to it

  • Min H: Sets the minimum amount of height pixels a Horizontal Scroll section can be. A red stippled horizontal line inside your section will reflect the minimum height

  • Clip content: Toggle to hide the content that goes beyond the section's edges

  • Resize to fill vertically: Click to set the section's height to 100%

  • Background:

    • Add fill: Add a color as the section's background

    • Add gradient: Combine colors to add a gradient as the section's background

    • Add background image: Upload an image or choose an image from one of our free stock images libraries and use it as the section's background

Aspect ratio

Specifying and locking the aspect ratio of a section will allow you to adjust and resize it but still maintain the overall relationship between height and width.

Tip: Right-click the aspect lock to open up a menu of popular aspect ratios.

Organizing Horizontal Scroll sections

Once a Horizontal Scroll section has been added it'll appear in the layers panel, you can drag it above or below other sections to place it where you need it in your project. Follow the steps below to learn how to do it.

  • Select the section in the layers panel

  • Click and hold it

  • Drag it above or below the section you want
