We’re updating multi-column sections in SharePoint Online to have their own toolboxes. This update will increase clarity and reduce space between sections by separating page structure from page content.
We’ll begin rolling this feature out in early December.
This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 24856.
How does this affect me?
Canvas experience for creating pages will be updated and page authors will see an additional multi-column section’s hint and associated toolbox that contains multi-column layout choices.
Existing web part toolboxes will no longer contain section layouts. This new experience allows better separation of content and layout as well as reduces wide space between two sections.
This feature will begin rolling out to first release organizations in early December, and will be completed by the end of December.
