In Website Builder, is it possible to group (ie. lock) together three items such as a text box, an image next to it, and a paypal button that goes with it?  While my items look fine in Desktop preview, they float about and become muddled with other items and paypal buttons in Mobile preview.  This worries me now that I'm so far into building the new website.  Using the previous Homestead programme, you could 'group' items such as these together, so they moved as one.  I am not interested in placing the three items together inside a Container, nor do I wish to 'dock' them.  Thank you.

In mobile editing mode you have the ability to move the items around in an order you want, although it probably won't let you put the picture-text-button in a row across, as it's too skinny.  Not sure why you wouldn't want to use the container feature. It has saved me a lot of headaches in having to refine-edit the mobile side.  best of luck!

Hello,

You can try wrapping with box, which is similar to placing in a box container but the system automatically groups these elements. You can hold down the shift key and click on the multiple elements. When they are all selected right click and select wrap with box.

Thanks for teaching me this method.  In the end I have decided to use containers.  However, it is so useful to know how to 'wra'p items to keep them together.
