    Default How to make objects stick to the far right or left on screen no matter screen's size?

    For the website I'm making, I'd like specific objects to stay on the edge of the screen (right and left), no matter the screen's size. How can I do this?

    TIA!

    Set Sticky and drag onto the Pasteboard so it doesn't touch the Page background.

    This will cause the objects to stick to the side of the browser window. If you want the objects to be in from the sides, add a rectangle the distance in that you want the object to be and either make it the same color as the background and group it to the floating object or make the rectangle transparent and group it to the floating object.

    Great info! Thanks! I'm sorry, I didn't phrase my question accurately. If I don't want it to be sticky (in that it stays in the same position as I scroll) but just want the object to stay on the edge of the web page - whether the screen window is open all the way or down sized, how do I do that?

    Hmm? I think the way to do that is to in Web Properties > Website, uncheck Clip to Page Edges.

    Then place the object off the page where you want it and group it to the page with a rectangle that overlaps the page slightly. The rectangle can be the page background or transparent.

    But then he can not use scale to fit feature, because that is what happened to me, on mobile it would try to load what is not on the page and looked all squished to the right.

    Yes, yours does exactly what I want! But when I place mine off my page and then preview it in the browser it does not show up... like yours does! It looks straight forward, what are you doing that I haven't? Mmmm, I'll try out Gary's suggestion...

    You have to follow Acorns advice:
    Set Sticky and drag onto the Pasteboard so it doesn't touch the Page background.
    So set the sticky whilst the icon is on the page and apply. now drag it just of the page into the pasteboard area.
