Equalize Tool Help - F3

Are there any examples of how to best use the Equalize tool. I’m trying to build a page with Cards laid out in Columns and I would like all of the cards in a row to be the height of the tallest card.

It sounded like this was what the Equalize tool would accomplish, but so far I have been unable to get it to work. I have also not yet found any examples of it being used in the Starter Kits.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Same here. I added the parent Equalize Stack to the page, have 3 child stacks in which I have the cards that I want to have equal height. Does not work for me.

Update. I inspected the code on this page: Equalize

I noticed that Adam did not put the whole card into the equalize stack, but just the paragraph, which defines the content that causes the different heights. I did the same, and now it works.

Guess that’s what he meant with “specific content items”. A card itself is not specific enough. A paragraph is though :wink:


Yes, I even use two sometimes. Group 1 for the headers, group 2 for the paragraphs, if the headers differ too much.

In the Mercury Project that came with F3, there is an example of the Equalize tool in the CALL TO ACTION—007 page

And Call to Action–010 page

Not long after I first posted this question, I also discovered that you needed to equalize the content of a card for it to work. Now it works as advertised. Thanks for the insights.


This is pretty much how Equalize worked in Foundry 2 as well, but I don’t know if a lot of people explored it all that much. This version centralizes the code that does the equalizing though, which makes things more lightweight.
