Re-usable container component

I’m trying to figure out a workflow where I can make a library of components and re-use. This is all fine and easy for normal components. But when I wan´t a container component (such as a main layout) and re-use it. Then it´s not possible to use the container areas without detaching the main layout component (and thereby loosing all benefits of re-using the component).

Is there a best practice workflow where I can create a handful of “main layouts” then re use them in a lot of pages. Then automatically update all pages when I make a change to my main layout?

Have a look at these two videos to show you the technique to achieve this:

Worked perfectly, thanks a lot @Shane!

Welcome Andre :slight_smile: Other videos in that series are also worth a gander, especially if you’re working a lot with tables.
