I have many time that i not happy with the drag and drop mode of toolbox in the pageEditor. My problems and i suppose other user problems come from not managing the height and width of the controls wrappers added to the page. I suppose that you can make this using some properties but it's not clear for me. This result in not very happy clients adding ours controls. If you using for sample float 33% controls you have 3 lines blocks in editor in place of 3 columns float left and page not very clear.
I have managed this issue using complexes solutions like registering custom scripts and get the parentNode to find the tag managing the wrapper width and height. It's working but is not very easier to use and i searching better solutions. After i have searched other solutions like use one custom Module registering my controls with W/H and Float and use these properties to insert the controls.
I know that you working today in new v4 with docks but i searching one better solution for v3+ where i have build many projects now.
Could imagine one better solution to manage this point using as sample one internal library in place to add externals the object is manage the wrapper added to controls. Exist some property that allow to manage this point easier and is not explored today? Some other team have dev other solution?
What we need ? Better management of heigh, width and float properties of controls added using toolbox in ours solutions. sorry better in frech and spanish.
