2 columns with independent scrolling


I am an employee of Adobe and i am administrating a section of Adobe Wiki (wiki.corp.adobe.com).

I was wondering if there is any way i could have 2 independent scrolling columns, 1 left column that is fixed and does not scroll with the other one, a Table of contents, and one to the right containing the actual page contents.


I appreciate your answer,

Kind regards,

Hi Daniel,

If you don't find a macro for this you can create that yourself.

Put the scrollable area in a div and link it with a class like this

.scroll {
overflow: auto;
height: 500px; 

PS: Your link doesn't work.

Hi Steffen,

Where do you do this?

Can you show me where you fill this in?

Kind regards,


  • Click Edit
  • Insert the CSS macro: Insert > Other Macros > CSS Stylesheet > Insert
  • Enter the code from above
  • Add a section to the page: Insert > Other Macros > Section
  • Insert two columns inside the section: Insert > Other Macros > Column
  • Insert the Table of contents macro inside the first column: Insert > Other Macros > Table of Contents
  • Insert a div inside the second column: Insert > Other Macros > Div
  • Double click and edit the div: Enter "scroll" at "Class"
  • Add text with headings to the second column

Hi Steffen,

That worked perfectly
