[SUGGESTION] Extend default positions - Or support all Bootstrap grid features incl. nested rows

Featured Lock Resolved Task
Hello, I have noticed your HELIX3 docs article about adding 2 custom positions above and below main content area. Which is a nice workaround, but actually a "core hack" to Helix3, isn't it? So here are my current issues/requests for an upcoming release:

  • At least add these 2 extra positions to the default layout
  • Nested Rows would make it even more flexible**
  • Maybe split message area from main component
  • Add support for all Bootstrap3 grid features in layout editor
  • Current .col-xx-x parameters seem to be incomplete. Why only "tablet" and "phone", when bootstrap supplies 4 default grid-classes?
  • Without any column setting, there are two default grid classes applied: col-sm-12 col-md-12 Why is this? There should be NO default.
  • Layout builder UI: Remove Column
  • Layout builder UI: Duplicate Column
  • Layout builder UI: Drag&Drop from one Row to another Row.
  • Layout builder UI: Copy/Duplicate Row
  • Column Settings, Module Position selectbox: Remove position, set NO position.
  • Settings: Hide on... 3 checkboxes take too much vertical space. Horizontal layout? Icons for phone/tablet/desktop
  • Layout builder UI: Hide on... icons in builder? (benefits: quick overview, no need to open settings modal window)

**BTW, Nested Rows are a basic feature since Bootstrap v1.3 !

Thanks for listening.
Please, ask for screenshots if something is not clear.

Sorry, I had to unfeature this thread as it takes over our customer opinion poll.

I've also hit several of these issues. Specifically not being able to select col-xs-12 and having to add an 'above content' area manually, which would seem to be a standard requirement. But would agree with the other changes too, particularly extending support for all the bootstrap features.
