Question on assigning object locations in Muse website?

I am familiar with some of the Adobe software (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator), but Muse is new to me. Is there some way that I can set a designated location/organization to objects on a page?

If you were maintaining the (live) website, is Muse the acceptable program for that or would Dreamweaver be preferred? For example, you have images A, B, C, & D on a page. You want to add image E on that same page, but between images A & B. Is there a way to program that so all formatting, etc. remains? Every way I have come up with so far involves moving many objects around.

Thanks for pinging me ankushr40215001​.

Static HTML sites can't do this.  But PHP code can dynamically  populate your layout with images from a designated folder on your server.  Depending on your filenames and sorting order (ascending or descending), you can accurately program where new images appear.   Although, I usually like new images to be on top of older ones.  

Programming with HTML & PHP code is not rocket science but Muse is absolutely the wrong tool for this.  You need a code editor like Dreamweaver or Brackets, etc... and a good grasp of coding basics.

See below for a Live Demo.  This responsive, masonry type layout was created with Bootstrap 4.

Hey joshhh,

Sorry that Muse won't be able to deal with such request.

In Muse we have a very few options of automation apart from widgets.

And I on't think if this can be done with Dreamweaver also?

Regards,

Ankush

Thanks Ankush. Are you saying that the formatting must be rearranged each times additions are made? I'm surprised to hear there would also be no option in Dreamweaver, because I know that software is leaps and bounds ahead of Muse.
