Tile wrapping

Henry 9 months ago in Configuration & Settings • updated 9 months ago 2

Apologies for the basic questions, I did search through all settings menus and also on this forum but couldn't find an answer.

In one tileset, I have a 2x2 tile followed by two 1x1 tiles. I would like the two 1x1 tiles to be in a column, as opposed to a row. As an example, in the attached screenshot, I would like the 'Posh lights' tile to be underneath the 'TV lights' tile as opposed to the right of it. 

Secondly, is it possible to hide the status of a switch on a tile? I.e. the 'on' or 'off' wording at the bottom of the tiles.

I am currently in the free trial time, but plan on purchasing a licence.

Thank you in advance.

Howdy Henry,

No need to apologize ... some layout tricks are definitely not obvious and we hope to make them easier. We have a few Feature Requests to force line-wrapping and/or allow Tilesets side-by-side, etc., which we are researching. In a lot of cases you can just start a new Tileset (as that forces a row to wrap), but it won't stack your 1x1 Tiles in this case.

In the meantime, you can accomplish your desired layout by inserting the "right number" of Blank Tiles between the 2 1x1 Tiles in your Tilesets.

The number of Blank Tiles required depends on your physical screen width (and Panel Tile Size setting). I'm just emulating a width so as to demonstrate when 2 Blank Tiles are required.

As for removing the "on/off" status in the Footer; that is currently not an option. We'll keep this in mind. There's already a Feature Request to allow this to be customized (e.g., to read "up/down" for example), so I think this will be doable in some future release.

Thanks for your questions and feedback!

Enjoy ActionTiles,



That worked - thanks for the rapid response!
