I'm hoping I'm just missing something, but it seems I'm rather limited as to what I can put in to a responsive cell. Is there any way I can put anything I want into a "cell", regardless of whether an element has been made "responsive"? I get that I'm in a responsive layout, but when working in html, I can put anything I want into a Bootstrap cell, even without specifying any Bootstrap column classes.
Thank you for contacting us.
You can use many of the UI elements in the Toolbox in Indigo Studio for responsive design layouts. You'll see an indicator for the ones you can't use. Were you looking for an particular element you couldn't add?
Also, you don't need to make elements responsive to place them inside cells in our Bootstrap Container. You can use them as they are in the Toolbox.
Please refer to our help docs for more information on this topic, for example: http://help.indigodesigned.com/designing-responsive-web-pages/creating-your-first-responsive-web-page-layout.
Please, let us know if we can help you in any other way.

If I double-click to put the cell into edit mode, it won't let me insert a Tree. Hovering over Tree, it says "You can only add responsive UI Elements". It's the same with the Table element, and a few others.
Yes, this is a limitation of the current Bootstrap layouts. We have realized that Bootstrap layouts are not flexible enough for complex app layouts, so we are working on an alternate way to composed UIs for responsive/adaptive layouts.
Can you share some of the layouts you are looking to recreate so that we can design for those scenarios? If your designs are private, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are just working on some layout ideas for a new feature in our app, but it wasn't anything complex. At the time, I just needed to drop in a treeview inside a Bootstrap cell. I would have also needed a grid as well. I just switched to a non-responsive page instead.
While I'm here, just thought I'd mention feedback about the treeview, it seems like it could be easier to use, as far as entering and manipulating nodes. Luckily, I figured out some of the keyboard shortcuts by accident, which helped. Also, I needed every node to have a checkbox on the left, and the only way I could find to do that was to manually add the icon to every node individually...for about 50 nodes.
You can indeed add an icon for all the items in a tree. Just make sure you've selected whole tree instead of a single item.
When the tree is selected you'll see Default Icon at the bottom of the Properties panel.
The icon you pick there will show to the left of every item in the tree. Of course you can make changes to the icon for individual items, too.
