Figure 1 shows the suggestion to group components via a panel

Use a grid layout for dynamic sizing

The panel’s advantage is that it has a clear structure in outline and it is easy to copy/paste

You “Create once and reuse”

If you have panel, you have flexible CSS options

In Design Studio 1.4 the panel has an online composition concept where you can save a part of the panel as a fragment, portable bookmark.

Design Studio 1.4 will provide the global scripting as discussed in Figure 2.
