I love that Alteryx came out with the Visual Layout tool, but have found the Elemental Boundaries to be a bit fickle. I think it would be helpful if items (tables, charts, etc.) could be brought in and moved around like a snippet of paper being moved around on the larger sheet. Additionally, I think it would be helpful if items brought in were the same size as they are output from the tool that is feeding into the visual layout. For example, if a table is set to 4.25 inches and I bring that table into the visual layout tool (with the page setup to be 8.5" x 11" with no margins) then the table would take up half of the width of the visual layout. It gets confusing when I bring something in at a specified size and can then readjust it. It's like having two volume controls on one stereo. If something needs to be adjusted, then I'd rather go back to the took where the columns are being formatted and adjust there.
If the latter is not possible due to other tools, it would be helpful if each item could be treated independently and not push other charts/tables as one is being adjusted or restrict the sizing of those within the same elemental boundary.
Lastly, can this tool be corrected so that images render exactly as they appear on screen?
