My cards were rearranged when I removed a card

Hi everyone;

I followed Laura's instructions to create a tabbed form.Screen Shot 2019-10-14 at 10.03.32 PM.png


I arrange the tabs in the order of x and y.
But when I deleted a card, everything was rearranged in an unexpected order. (And I can't Ctrl + Z to undo)

In my example, I add a new field name "Action"

And then remove it. And My form is like a mess.Screen Shot 2019-10-14 at 10.07.31 PM.png

I tried turning off snap to collumn turn off, it worked, things didn't seem to be rearranged at that time I remove that card. However, when I turned on again snap to column, everything was rearranged in an unexpected order.

Is there anyone who has the most effective way to organize cards, please guide me.

They can be tricky to get used to. A lot of times I will turn on snap to columns and then change it to 2 columns and then back to 3 and it will help me get them arranged better. 


I rarely actually use the Snap to columns unless I am doing a phone app and just one column. I use math to arrange mine basically. If your form is 600 wide and you want 3 across make sure that each card is 200 wide, if you want two 300 wide and so on. I check my widths and do them manually. It may sound like it takes longer but it really doesn' is much quicker when you get used to it. 


Everybody has their own way, just figure out what you like best. This is just my way.
