Detaching Multiple Artboard Layouts
KappaX's advanced multiple layouts feature is a powerful tool that provides designers with a lot of flexibility in their design process. In this article, we will dive deep into the different ways you can use the feature to its full potential.
Creating & Detaching Layouts
When creating a new artboard layout in KappaX, it is automatically attached to the parent layout. Any changes made to the parent layout will show up in the new layout. However, you have the option to detach a layout from its parent. You can do this by either overriding a property or by completely detaching layouts using the properties panel.
Property Level Detachment
Property-level detachment is when you make changes to the parent layout, and those changes do not reflect in the other layouts. For instance, if you create a new layout called 'Layout B' and change the size of a video on it. Now, if you switch back to the default layout and change the video's size there, it will not affect the video in ‘Layout B’.
Inheriting layouts is another feature of KappaX's advanced multiple layouts. When you create another ‘Layout C' that inherits from ‘Layout B’, any changes you make to the default layout will also show up in ‘Layout C’ because it is the indirect parent of ‘Layout C’. But, if you make changes to ‘Layout B’, it will override this change in ‘Layout C’ as it is the immediate parent of ‘Layout C’. However, it will not affect the default layout.
To inherit layouts, select the layout you want to inherit from, click on the 'Create new layout' button, name the new layout, and click 'Create'. The new layout will inherit properties from the Parent layout.
If you want to completely detach two layouts from each other, KappaX has an option for that too. When you select the 'detach' option for a layout, it becomes independent of the other layout. This means any changes you make in the parent layout will not be reflected in the other layout.
To completely detach layouts, select the layout you want to detach and click on the 'Detach' button.
