I believe that a more flexible canvas with columns is on its way and actively being developed right now. Maria Marquez mentioned this in the last webinar about custom templates. She mentioned that the big hurdle to overcome was performance and not killing Doc’s performance. They want to do it right.
I think everyon looks at Notion and sees the potential here. It’s on its way.
Are there some news about columns?
Its horrible to make a similar compact and good looking page like in Notion without columns. For a good reason most templates and examples are focused to the excellent database features. You cannot design a compact looking page without the support of some structure elements.
