Controlling the Appearance of Interactive Dashboard Pages
This topic explains how to control the appearance of the dashboard pages using the dashboard editor. For more information on navigating to the dashboard editor, see Navigating to the Dashboard Editor.
Before you begin. To create and edit interactive dashboards, your role must include the Manage Dashboards privilege.
Working with Columns in Interactive Dashboard Pages
Columns are used to align the content on a dashboard. The sections within the columns hold the content. You can add or remove columns, set the width in pixels or as a percentage of the dashboard page, and break columns.
When you have more than one column on a dashboard page, you can break the columns to arrange them on the page. (The drag-and-drop feature does not reposition the columns.) For example, if you have two columns side by side, breaking the rightmost column causes it to move beneath the first column, and both columns will span the width originally occupied when they were side by side. If you have three columns side by side, breaking the middle column causes the two outer columns to move beneath the first column, and the first column spans the width originally occupied by the first two columns.

Adding Sections to Interactive Dashboard Pages
Sections are used within columns to hold the content of a dashboard. Sections are aligned vertically by default. You can drag as many sections as you want into a column.
If you drag and drop content into a column without first adding a section to hold the content, a section is created automatically.
If you drag a section from one column into another column, any content in that section is also included.
