how can you resize and move buttons, menus, textfields,.. around the canvas?

I see 3 options in CSS styles. I pick the one that says apply to a specific tag and then do absolute. This is the only way I can resize and move the button. But then when I add a second button, it will have the same css style as the first and I want multiple buttons with their own css style.

If theres another way to drag buttons around the canvas that would be better.

Put each of your buttons or whatever inside its own named layer then style the layer
the way you want it.

Ok. how do i style the layer so I can resize the buttons inside? There are no resize handles on the buttons. How can I drag the button to any position inside the layer?

You move the layers around not the buttons. Make the layer the same size as your button.
When you have your button selected look on the properties bar and you can resize from there.

thanks. seems tedius to make a layer for each button or form element just to edit it.

I see no resizing options in the properties bar when the button is selected inside the layer. i see button name, label, action, and class.
