ISSUE-130: balanced columns in fixed-height

balanced columns in fixed-height

State:
CLOSED
Product:
CSS Multi-Column Layout
Raised by:
Alex Mogilevsky
Opened on:
2010-07-07
Description:
If the height of a multi-column container is explicitly specified, then the column-fill: balance property is ignored in current implementations. The current spec doesn’t seem to say anything on this. Can we get it specified?

In my opinion, disabling balancing with fixed columns may appear somewhat easier to implement, but it is a case of property side effect that we generally tend to avoid...
