The Title serves two purposes: (1) to identify the component in the component list, and (2) to be used within the template itself as a section header. 

If you wish to show the Title as a section header, turn on the 'Show title' switcher.

Component Layout

The Component Layout allows you to decide how much space the component will occupy. 100% will take the whole width of the column, while 50% will take half of the column. 

When 50% is applied, there is space for another 50% component right next to it. This setting is not recommended for large tables with multi-column layouts due to space constraints, however, using the 50% layout in landscape or single-column designs can be useful.

See below an example of a small variations table next to an image:

Customize Table Style

The Variations Component has a table layout. Click the 'Customize table style' button to customize how the table looks. A pop up will appear showing the options available. 

The customize style table allows customization of how the table font and color appears.

  • Font - This is the font style for the whole table.
  • Size - This controls the font size for the whole table.
  • Text Style - Choose bold, italic, underlined, or a combination of these styles for all the text.
  • Alignment - This is the text alignment for the whole table.
  • Header color - Choose the color of the header bar.
  • Header text color - Choose the text color in the header bar.
  • Alternating color - Choose the color for alternating rows. Leave white if you do not want any color differences.
  • Content text color - This is the color of the text in the rows under the header bar.
  • Table preview - Here you will see your style options reflected. You can also drag the columns to change their width. 
  • Vertical Padding - This controls the vertical space within each row.



Sort by attribute

Here you can choose to sort the attributes automatically in the table. Choose the attribute you want to sort by and then if you want the order to be ascending (A to Z) or descending (Z to A).
