there is an issue that what developers see in the modeler and browser dont match.

proposed fix:

if there would be a way to create coloumns in the modelar that dont render in the dom, that would make it clearer for developers what is going on.

would also solve the issue of having to scroll down super far due to responsive flex layouts currently being 50 containers under each other op top of every page, but maybe that’s a different issue all together :P 


Great idea!
