What happened to the drag and drop options for creating and editing pages?
Please check this
In versions 4.1 and earlier, the grid edit had a table mockup at the bottom so when you changed column span, numbers, added table breaks, etc. at least you could understand how it changed. A big selling point of Apex is the rapid prototype development methodology.
This is a step backwards and I have not seen any explanation as to why. I am going to venture a guess, that Apex is too convenient and cuts into the business model of monetizing the apps.
Drag and Drop Layout Editor - Reintroduce the drag and drop layout editor which is compatible with laying out items within a grid layout.
So with our planned enhancements to the Application Builder for 5.0, to improve developer productivity, we would not deem the removal of the drag & drop feature from 4.2 as a "step backwards", but more as a stepping stone towards an enhanced offering in our future release. In relation to the grid layout changes that were introduced with 4.2, you'll find a number of threads discussing this topic, which will hopefully prove useful.
