If you’re using Webflow to build your website, you may come across a need to change the size of a container. Whether you want to make it larger or smaller, Webflow provides an easy way to adjust the dimensions of your container. In this tutorial, we will explore how to change the size of a container in Webflow.

The first step is to select the container that you want to resize. You can do this by clicking on the container in the Webflow Designer. Once selected, you will see the options panel on the right-hand side of the screen.

Step 2: Adjusting Width and Height

To change the width of your container, scroll down in the options panel until you find the “Width” section. Here, you can input a specific value for the width or use one of Webflow’s predefined options such as “Auto” or “100%”.

To adjust the height of your container, scroll further down until you find the “Height” section. Similar to adjusting width, you can input a specific value or choose from predefined options.

Webflow makes it easy for you to create responsive designs that adapt to different screen sizes. To ensure that your container looks great on all devices, navigate to the “Responsive” tab within the options panel.

Here, you’ll find various settings related to responsiveness. You can adjust your container’s width and height for different breakpoints such as desktop, tablet, and mobile. Webflow provides a visual representation of each breakpoint, allowing you to fine-tune your design accordingly.
