So the new instances expand across the page, instead of expanding down the page.
Hi Mike, will there only be a limited number of fields added? I would be concerned about field wrap and available space.
The use case is for a 2 dimensional repeat, with limited number of repeats in each. So it extends across the page for the first repeat level, then down the page for the second repeat. Of course in Mobile screen sizes all repeats would have to be stacked vertically, but for this case 99% of usage would be on desktop.
Its obviously a rare case, but an interesting question for Maestro!
This was possible in composer because of the flow blocks, but in Maestro with the move to the 12 column grid format this is no longer possible without putting in separate elements and using Show/Hide scripting rules.
This also goes against best practices for user experience as it would be hard to determine where the add/delete buttons would go and what you would be deleting. In addition to the fields not being linked together in the way the repeating block would be
I spoke to a couple of developers, and they say this should be possible (although they haven't actually tried it). You will need to add some CSS to the repeat component, at both the container and the item CSS targets. The CSS will be a bit fiddly - apparently you will have to modify the bootstrap classes (or something - CSS not my strong point).
Let me know if you can't get this working, I'll try to find some more information.
And if you get it working, please post!
