There are three types of Typefi Elements: Inline, Fixed, and Floating. The type you specify determines how an Element is positioned on the page during the automated composition process.
|Inline||Use this type to insert content into the main story text. Inline Elements are attached—or anchored—to specific text and travel with that text as it flows. They can be positioned in three ways: relative to the baseline of the text in which they are anchored, above the text in which they are anchored, or in a custom location.|
|Fixed||Use this type to place content outside the main story text in a fixed position. Fixed Elements are positioned based on their original master page location.|
|Floating||Use this type to place content in a variable position, based on a set of predefined layout rules. Floating Elements provide the most versatility in placement options because they contain one or more Element variants (alternative renderings). Each variant has its own set of layout rules.|
