How can I use Confluence layouts in Scroll Viewport?

Scroll Viewport is stripping the 'layouts' (eg 2-column or 3-column blocks within a page) that I've added in Confluence.

Is it possible to enable this?

Hi @Craig Melcher

I was wondering if you're using the Help Center theme in Scroll Viewport or if you're using the Web Help or a totally custom theme.

This will help me figure out what's happening here.

Hi @Matt Reiner 

Yes, we're using the Help Center theme in SV. I'm just using the theme settings in the app, not using any customized CSS etc.

Ah, OK. 👍🏻

Unfortunately, we don’t support Confluence’s page layout option in Scroll Viewport and this limitation is by design: To guarantee a perfect presentation of your content we currently suppress multi column layouts.

Content on columns is instead displayed beneath each other (as you see in your example). We think that readability might suffer as the article template is already divided into two columns, the article navigation and the article content (and even three columns if the Table of contents option is enabled).

So we recommend laying out content so it’s optimized for the width of the article content column.

That’s not to say that we won’t offer multi-column layouts in the future, but we think it might require a rethinking of the current article template altogether (maybe a different article layout option in the theme editor).
