Take a look at building an inline layout for a starter. You’ll need to
double-click the page area so you see a text cursor flashing in the
upper-left corner, then use Insert / HTML Item from the main menu to
insert your first content item. Set that item to have a percentage
width, and if you want a centered site, then use Margin:auto to center
the item within the page.
All the other parts of your layout need to be inline children of that
first box you add to the page, and if you follow that construction
technique, you’ll be able to have a page that flexes to fit the
Resist the urge to make any text box wide enough to show more than 15
20 words in a line: that’s just bad practice. Figure out how wide
that is in your text style, and then set the max-width property on
that text box (use Item/Extended for this) to keep the text box from
growing to an absurd width. You’ll need to consider how to treat any
surrounding elements so that your layout maintains its overall
proportion on a really wide screen.
