Result

Note:
  1. If the page already has content and the layout changes, the existing content stays in the same dropzones it started in. For example, content in dropzone2 of the old layout appears in dropzone2 of the new layout as well, although the dropzone may be in a significantly different location on the page.
  2. If the new layout has fewer or different dropzones than the old layout, there may be orphaned content. For example, if there is content in dropzone5 of the old layout, and the new layout does not have a dropzone5, that content is now orphaned. Any orphaned content is moved to dropzone1.
