Improvements to our drag and drop system

We're releasing improvements to our drag-and-drop system to make it easier than ever to build UIs within Retool. With our new preview experience, adding and moving components around the canvas is easier and more predictable, especially in nested and dense contexts.

Nested Contexts (e.g. Containers)

Containers no longer change size as you’re dragging over them, making it easier to drag and drop in and out of nested areas:

Dense Contexts (e.g. Forms)

Surrounding components no longer move unpredictably. For example, dragging a Text Input into a dense form is easier than ever:

We want to hear from you! Reach out to if you have any feedback on drag and drop. We’re continuing to add more improvements over the coming weeks.
