Changing settings of default layout grid

Hello everyone,   Does anyone know how to change the default settings when adding a layout grid. When I select a layout grid, the default size is set to auto-fill, however when I choose 4 columns, I want it to set to 3 per column. It costs me a lot of time to constantly change the size from auto-fill to 3 for example. Or is that a default Mendix setting that's not adjustable? I can't seem to find the answer

Hi Roy

When you drag a layout grid on your page, you can select your column you desire and set it manual to whatever number you prefer:







I hope this helps you.

Kind regards,


Edit: then this is your solution, right?

Edit²: suggestion: build a custom Layout Grid Widget where the default values can be set up front.
