How do I position a flexible form in a Flex Grid?

Hello

I'm just building my first site using QWB, based on a Flex Grid (using version 7.1.1 64bit on Windows 8.1).

I note that in V7 that the Form Wizard can now create flexible/responsive forms. I've successfully created one, but can't find a way of putting it into one of the cells in the Flex Grid. By default, it sits full-width under the footer.

In the Property Inspector, Miscellaneous section, there is the option to input a specific grid system, so I've tried changing this to 'css grid' from 'default'. There's also a 'Position' property, and using this I can reposition it above the header.

I've also tried building a form manually, but can't drag the Form Area into a cell on the grid either.

'Enable Form' is set to True.

I've been able to sandwich the form (set to Fluid + CSS Grid) between two Flex Grids on the page, so I do have a workaround, though (perhaps through lack of knowledge) the layout isn't exactly as I would like.

Presumably there is a better way?

Thanks

I'm sorry, flex grids currently do not support forms.
But you can have a layout grids and flexgrids on the same page (not nested).

OK, thanks for the explanation.
